Metro Supply Chain’s highly automated Bolton facility is now full upon signing customer agreements

Metro Supply Chain has filled its 285,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art distribution centre in Bolton, Ontario upon completing customer agreements. The fit out of the highly automated facility is on track, with first customer shipments expected in December 2022.

“We’d like to thank our customers for partnering with us at our Bolton facility,” says Martin Graham, Group President of Metro Supply Chain. “As businesses continue to demand innovative supply chain solutions that manage seasonal and unexpected peaks, we are well positioned to support their growth in North America and Europe with future sites that use advanced automation.”

In 2021, Metro Supply Chain announced a $100-plus million automation investment to provide technology-driven solutions and business intelligence to help businesses scale and deliver a fast, reliable and seamless experience for their customers. The Bolton facility will offer multi-channel fulfillment, fueled by AutoStore, and put-to-store processing. Bastian Solutions will integrate the flexible goods-to-person solution with automated conveyors, high-capacity packing stations, and high-density, very narrow aisle racking.

“As a strategic partner to leading organizations around the world, we’re committed to helping businesses achieve a competitive advantage through agile, data-driven supply chain solutions,” explains Chiko Nanji, Group CEO and founder of Metro Supply Chain. “Automation helps optimize operations and provide greater productivity and inventory control, so our team can focus on activities that add even greater value to our customers.”
