As hybrid work model continues, experts predict e-commerce to make up 28% of the market share in DIY home improvement by 2025 — 7% increase from 2020 in the US alone. 

Examples of the many challenges home improvement entities face from an order fulfillment perspective include the inability to manage growth efficiently, large SKUs, tight shipping schedules and the need to separate inventory storage from material handling processes.

This is the ideal time for retailers to gain a competitive edge by investing in automation and making fulfillment more accessible.

With DIY Home Improvement stores getting low foot traffic, ROA on stores is stressed. They need omnichannel and micro-fulfillment nodes to remain relevant in the new world order.


High order volume with reduced lines per order

High orders with fewer lines per order due to ecommerce spike fuel the need for building capacity


Low foot traffic

Varying demands from new channel mix need a customer-centric fulfillment strategy for real-time inventory visibility and faster last-mile deliveries


Long deployment time
