UK e-grocery specialist Last Mile Solutions has selected retailing.net to supply and implement its warehouse fulfillment, merchandising and buying systems. This marks retailing.net`s first customer win. Last Mile Solutions in partnership with the Waitrose grocery business, intends to launch in the summer of 2001 and move nationwide over the next three years.
Launched earlier this month, retailing.net provides an end-to-end e-retailing solution to bricks-and-mortar and online-only food, grocery and consumer packaged goods retail and wholesale clients. The company`s modular, fully integrated solution gives retailers real-time access to information, scalability, high volume support and excellent system performance. retailing.net is delivering its solution to LMS in partnership with AllPoints Systems, Inc., a division of EXE technologies and a leading provider of e-fulfillment solutions, and Armature Ltd., a supply chain application provider for the consumer goods industry.
"Our aim is to become a leading on-line food retailer in Europe, delivering the superior standards of customer service that people expect from the Waitrose brand. To do this, we need to work with a supplier, who understands the grocery and retail markets and knows what it means to exceed customer expectations. It was clear to us that retailing.net has the expertise, approach and ability to move at the e-speed and quality that LMS demands." said Jackie Edwards, Last Mile Solutions IT Director.
