Bol.com expands logistics services
Bol.com is expanding its range of services as it looks to add more sales partners. Bol.com is extending its service to control the logistics and shipments for retailers, which have their own warehouses. Retailers will be able to offer faster delivery options such as next day delivery, as bol.com intends to help its partners reach more shoppers.
Albert Heijn increases home delivery
Albert Heijn will introduce two new home shop centres (HSC), following the opening of one in Amsterdam during November 2019, which enabled the retailer to double the capacity for home delivery. The two new locations are in Oosterhout and Bleiswijk and are 20,000 sq. m each.
The retailer has increased its capacity to meet shopper demand. The group has noticed an increase in the number of private shoppers and businesses ordering groceries. With both new HSC the group can process 40,000 orders per week from each.
