With plans to add a network of distribution and shipment-handling sides, Lowe’s wants to improve their operational aspects for customers.

With e-commerce sales continually on the rise, Lowe’s has said that it will open four e-commerce fulfilment centres over the next 18 months to enable speedy delivery to customers. The company also plans to open seven bulk distribution sites for larger appliances and outdoor products such as barbecue grills.

The announcement comes as part of Lowe’s five-year push to update its supply chain to meet growing digital demand and address company weaknesses such as out-of-stock problems.
