A SHOPPER'S GUIDE TO E-GROCERY FULFILLMENT 

DISRUPTION COMES TO THE GROCERY STORE

E-commerce has been a highly disruptive force in the retail sector over the last ten years, rapidly growing to account for up to 20% of total sales. The grocery sector has largely been immune to this disruption with only about 3% of grocery spending in the U.S. occurring online in 2019.
 
That is now changing — and quickly. Demand for e-grocery services is accelerating and multiple sources predict the industry is on the cusp of the same type of disruption other retail sectors have already experienced:
 
• Online grocery sales in the U.S. is growing by 15% this year according to an analysis from Bricks Meet Clicks.
• Nielsen and the Food Marketing Institute project that consumer spending on e-grocery could reach $100 billion by 2022 — triple what it is today.
• A research study from Edge by Ascential projects the e-grocery sector will experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13% through 2024,
increasing total online sales to $162 billion.
 

REACHING THE LIMITS OF MANUAL PICKING

 
Grocers have been meeting current e-grocery demand—and stoking the market — by employing manual pickers, essentially surrogate shoppers, who travel up and down supermarket aisles along with other shoppers pulling orders. But this approach is labor- and time-intensive and because the market is not willing to absorb the full cost of order fulfillment, is forcing grocers to sacrifice profitability to remain competitive in the e-grocery space.
 
With their oversized carts, surrogate shoppers also create congestion in store aisles that negatively impacts the shopping experience for other consumers. According to industry sources, a grocery store will start to feel congested when just 6-8% of purchases are e-commerce orders fulfilled by manual pickers. That’s a level some stores are already at and most will reach within the next two years. Grocers who continue on the path of using surrogate shoppers to pull e-commerce orders from store shelves risk growing their e-commerce business at the expense of more profitable in-store sales.
