TEXAS - As its loyal consumer following continues to grow, H-E-B is expanding its footprint across the Lone Star State with the addition of its newest e-commerce fulfillment center. Located in Leander, Texas, the facility builds on the retailer’s commitment to integrating innovative technologies in order to drive omnichannel development.

With the rising demand for online shopping, the e-commerce fulfillment centers stock products found in stores that are used to fill Curbside and Home Delivery orders. The facilities allow for greater capacity, efficiency, decreased aisle congestion for in-store shoppers, and better product availability.

To help streamline the process and increase productivity, the facilities utilize various types of automation, and through these centers, H-E-B has grown its supply chain capacity to expand its Curbside and Home Delivery services to more than 260 stores in the state.
