Ocado’s first international customer fulfilment centre (CFC) has today gone live for French supermarket giant Casino.
The CFC is located at Fleury-Mérogis, near Paris, and will be operating with what Ocado called “a small number of test orders”, which will be ramped up over the coming months.
At capacity, Ocado said the depot will be able to handle a turnover of €500m and serve customers across Paris and the nearby Hauts-de-France region for Casino Monoprix customers.
Monoprix has also launched a new ecommerce service with Ocado’s Smart Platform, called Monoprix Plus, which fulfilled its first delivery through the Fleury-Mérogis depot on March 18.
