350,000-square-foot warehouse in Florida for Kroger/Ocado

The US supermarket chain, Kroger, and UK online grocery company, Ocado, plan to build a 350,000-square-foot warehouse in Florida. The customer fulfillment center should employ about 400 people. Construction is scheduled to start later this year with an opening date of 2021.

Ocado did about $1.9 billion in sales in 2018. Kroger invested $248 million in Ocado last year. The partnership between Ocado and Kroger calls for the construction of 20 warehouses in the United States.
