Ocado in the UK picks ecommerce grocery orders exclusively from large scale CFCs supported by their home built WCS solutions.
Hatfield was selected as their first location for the following reasons
- Proximity to affluent urban and suburban areas of London and nearby counties
- Proximity to an area with a base/history of lower waged/skilled workers
- Not far from one of the head offices of supermarket giant Tesco, allowing easier recruitment of skilled grocery buyers
- Close to a well regarded polytechnical university.
