Consumers are increasingly shopping online, a trend that started years ago, but has gained momentum due to recent developments. Bol.com sees this trend reflected in the number of sales and over the past years, bol.com is also handling a growing number of partners that offer products through their platform. In order to keep up with this growth and at the same time serve customers even better, bol.com continuously optimizes its logistical process and builds new “fulfilment centers” that can accommodate up to a million unique items.
The new distribution center in Waalwijk is equipped with smart technology that makes the work processes more efficient. In addition, the PostNL sorting process is placed within the new center, which makes the time between order and delivery as short as possible, with fewer transport movements necessary, resulting in customers who receive their orders even faster.
