Picnic has a fully integrated just-in-time supply chain process. Orders are picked by our shoppers in one of our five Dutch Fulfilment Centers (FCs) and are then shipped to one of our thirty-seven Dutch Hubs. From the Hubs, the groceries are delivered to our customers with our iconic electric Picnic vehicles.
