H-E-B has opened a new eCommerce fulfillment center (eFC) in Katy. At more than 100,000 square feet in size, it is the largest eCommerce fulfillment center for the company, coming in at twice the size of previous facilities.
The Katy eFC will support H-E-B Curbside and Home Delivery orders across the Houston area. The Katy facility will employ more than 300 part-time and full-time H-E-B Partners as part of the retailer’s eCommerce team.
H-E-B says these facilities allow for more capacity, greater efficiency, less aisle congestion for the in-store shopper, and better product availability. To help streamline the process and boost productivity, the facilities use various forms of automation to help Partners throughout the order process. With these centers, H-E-B has grown its Curbside and Home Delivery services, which are available at more than 270 stores in Texas. The Katy facility marks H-E-B’s seventh eCommerce fulfillment center the company has opened since 2018. The company says there are more on the way.
