Nanofulfillment is a logistics model that places small-scale distribution within an hour of delivery to the consumer. A nanofulfillment center might be as small as 800 square feet, and yet also be a fully automated, standalone warehousing operation. Multiple nanofulfillment operations, owned by different companies or targeting different demographics, might occupy a previously vacated corner store, or a single nanofulfillment center might sit in a corner of a still-operating big-box store.
For many in the industry, both microfulfillment and nanofulfillment are seen as ways to create a lean fulfillment operation. Instead of focusing on large-scale warehousing at distant facilities, both microfulfillment and nanofulfillment can allow merchants to store a limited amount of goods as close to the consumer as possible, saving on cost and preventing many of the logistical hassles associated with warehousing and distribution. For small-scale operations especially, micro- and nano- solutions lower the barriers to entry.
