According to a press release, the new spoke facility will collaborate with the fulfillment hub in Monroe, Ohio, and serve as a last-mile cross-dock location that efficiently extends the fulfillment network reach to customers up to 200 miles away from the hub.

"When our customers think of food, they think of Kroger," continued Arreaga. "The addition of a spoke facility in the Columbus division is one more state-of-the-art example of how Kroger is fulfilling its commitment to providing our customers anything, anywhere, anytime."
