H-E-B Opens Fifth E-commerce Fulfillment Hub

H-E-B opened a new fulfillment center in Leander, Texas, in order to support their commitment to curbside grocery pickup and home delivery channels. The San Antonio-based grocer said its new e-commerce center will help relieve in-store congestion and provide a more convenient shopping experience for Texans.

The 50,000-square-foot facility, like the four previously opened centers, uses various forms of automation throughout the order fulfillment process. “Across our business, we are adopting innovative technologies that give our partners the tools they need to provide top-quality service to our customers, whether they shop online or in our stores,” H-E-B VP of e-Commerce Kedar Patel said in a statement. H-E-B’s first e-commerce fulfillment center was opened in 2018. By the end of next year, the retailer is planning to open more locations across Texas, including in Plano, to help support the grocer’s development in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. H-E-B has more than 420 stores in Texas and Mexico. Curbside and home delivery is available at more than 260 locations in Texas.
