Step inside Ocado's next generation warehouses:
・Ocado’s latest Customer Fulfillment Center (CFC) in Andover opened its doors to press on the first day of May this year. This was a key moment in the history of Ocado, as the software and hardware found inside is the culmination of years of hard work and innovation for Ocado Technology and Ocado Engineering.
・By far the most differentiating feature of the Andover CFC is its revolutionary goods-to-person system; within the highly automated warehouse is a three storey high aluminium grid containing stacks of white storage crates of grocery items. Whizzing on top of the grid is a fleet of 1,100 robots that pick up crates from each stack and deliver them to pick stations where personal shoppers assemble the customer orders. The robots have been designed in-house by Ocado and embody the most efficient warehouse logistics solution ever designed, with the potential to revolutionise the way we think about online retail.
・The final product has not only outdone itself in terms of performance, but has also acted as an elegant proof of concept for the Ocado Smart Platform (OSP), Ocado’s end-to-end solution designed to power all aspects of an online retail business. Given the recent signing of Ocado Solutions’ fourth international deal with leading Swedish retailer ICA, this now bears even more significance, as we enter the construction stage of our OSP journey for retailers in France, Canada, and Sweden.

Fun facts about the Andover CFC:
・An average order of 50 items takes just 5 mins to pick and pack.
・The warehouse itself spans an area equivalent in size to three football pitches.
・The grid uses more steel than the Wembley arch (1089 tonnes).
・If you were to lay the tracks the robots travel on in a straight line, they could get all the way from London to Cambridge (112 km).
・Each robot travels between 50 km and 60 km per day.
・Each day the Andover robot fleet travels a distance that equates to 4.5 times around the planet!

・イギリスのネットスーパー、オカド(Ocado)が、この5月に最新のロボット倉庫を稼働させました。日本でもニトリ、コープさっぽろが導入したロボット倉庫ですが、その規模の違いに圧倒されます。すでに、様々な報道機関が取材動画を公表していますが、倉庫の規模はフットボール競技場3面、ロボット台数は1100台、直線距離では110km、ロボット1台、1日50-60km走行、総走破距離、1日、地球4.5周、ロボット間の距離はわずか5mm、当然、AIを駆使していますが、1秒間に300万回の計算処理、結果、顧客の注文に50アイテムを5分で完了とのことです。オカドは年商約2,000億円とのことですが、これを支えているのが、このCFC(Customer Fulfillment Center )だそうです。日本でも同様の動きがパルタックを通じて始まっていますが、日本の流通業では、あらゆる業界で新店開発が限界に近づきつつあるといえ、今後、このフルフィルメントが企業の盛衰を分ける段階に入ったといえそうです。世界はもちろん、日本の流通業界も、これまでとは違う、全く新しい競争のステージに入ったといえそうです。
