Supply Chain Automation to Bring Food Waste Below One PercentPicnic's CTO Daniel Gebler Explains the Roadmap for Fully Autonomous Supply Chain
After running e-commerce operations for a while, Picnic’s tech team finally cracked the code to offer better experience to its customers ordering groceries and food online. With the help of an entirely disruptive distribution model that not only ensures the lowest price but also freshest products, Picnic can now deliver with least last-mile issues.
With customers in over 200 cities across the Netherlands, Germany and France, the company is already working on second- and third-generation automation solutions that will involve digital and physical innovations.
"Using in-house agile and scrum-based innovations, we’re working to further optimize the integrated supply chain," says Daniel Gebler, founder and CTO of Picnic. "This will help in delivering products directly to either the distribution or the fulfillment centers, thus minimizing the need for warehousing."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Gebler discusses:
- The importance of autonomous, end-to-end integrated supply chain;
- Technology innovations to reduce food waste;
- Segregating PII data from transaction data for customer privacy.
Gebler has been leading technical teams since the online supermarket started in 2015. Previously, he was the director of R&D at Fredhopper, responsible for the product and technology roadmap. He also led engineering teams located in Amsterdam and Sofia.
