locai supports all fulfillment formats from in-store to dark store to fully automated robotic solutions, easily transitioning from one format to the next, enabling your business to scale operationally, market-by-market, as needed


Scaling with Demand

As the demand for eGrocery increases, success depends on efficiently scaling while increasing customer satisfaction. Grocers need diverse fulfillment options to navigate this rapidly shifting landscape. locai's cost-effective SaaS platform not only supports the full spectrum of fulfillment formats, but also provides your customer with a real-time view of your inventory.


Combatting Big Tech

Grocers are faced with how to address the Amazon effect. There is limited knowledge in the marketplace on how to operate profitable, dedicated fulfillment centers as well as manage efficient delivery networks. With locai, you not only get a great eCommerce platform, but a partnership with an experienced team of eGrocery operators who have tackled these challenges first-hand. 


Merchandising & Marketing Strategy


Merchandising Matters

Brand Matters

True omni-channel means that grocers need full control of their brand throughout every aspect of the customer experience. The locai eCommerce platform provides brand control not found in other eGrocery models.  The result: a positive ROI for our retail partners.
