Lockers Are The Next Innovation in Delivery

For too long when consumers order groceries or other products online they need to be at home to wait for the delivery driver or risk the product being left unattended.  Online food suppliers need to utilise excessive packaging to deal with food being left in unrefrigerated locations.   This technology changes that.  Elder Matias, Mighty Oaks CEO said: “With major international retailers such as Amazon and Walmart getting into the online groceries market in Canada, traditional regional grocers need to adapt, and we are helping them, Smart Lockers are going to be a critical success factor going forward.” The multi-carriage approach even allows to create a local locker-infrastructure as backbone for any kind of unattended delieveries in order to support e.g. local farmers and any local services, not just limited to grocery-deliveries.

FMI Connect in Chicago was an opportunity to meet with customers and collaborators in the US Grocery Industry.  Great event.  I had a chance to meet with several different players in the industry.  Despite the fact it feels like the CPG dominate this conference in various sessions I had a chance to meet with several grocers

Interesting question to ask.  Over the past two years we have seen a significant movement to the public cloud, specifically public cloud providers AWS (Amazon), Microsoft, and Google.  Now we are seeing another shift in the industry that back to private cloud.

A 451 Research study (VofE Cloud) found that there is an increasing desire to repatriate into a provide cloud configuration to drive down cost and gain better control of enterprise date. On average, those who planned to migrate workloads from public to private cloud environments within two years expected to move 40% of their public cloud workloads to private clouds.
