EPCIDO Powers Walmart's Next Generation Fulfillment Center in Indianapolis.
Walmart – the world’s largest supermarket chain has been investing in automation technology to improve their supply chain efficiency. One of the ways they are doing this is by building fully automated warehouses, which they call “Next Generation Fulfillment Centers”. These centres incorporate a variety of technologies such as robotics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to automate different aspects of the fulfilment process.
June 15, 2023, marked a momentous occasion as Walmart unveiled its colossal Next Generation Fulfillment Center in Indianapolis, a facility spanning an impressive 2.2 million square feet. As EPCIDO, a driving force in the domain of mechanical scope and steel structure installation within this monumental distribution hub, we take immense pride in having partnered with Knapp, a leading tech company specializing in intelligent fulfilment solutions, to bring forth a revolutionary automated, high-density storage system that redefines efficiency.
As a subcontractor to Knapp, EPCIDO took on the challenge of integrating a groundbreaking storage solution that streamlined a manual twelve-step process into a highly efficient five-step workflow. The result was a state-of-the-art system that not only optimizes storage and retrieval processes but also aligns seamlessly with Walmart’s commitment to enhancing customer experiences.
