Warehouse Planning Analyst

Hatfield, United Kingdom

We are a team of analysts that specialise in extracting and interpreting data to identify efficiency opportunities with a multi-million pound scope, directly impacting thousands of colleagues and hundreds of thousands of customers. We pride ourselves on making quick affirmative decisions and data is the driver to make this happen. We have billions of data points at our disposal, mapping the customer journey from the time they log on to the website to their orders arriving at the door.

From picking orders in our automated warehouses, to our transport operations on the road, we look to maximise profitability whilst improving our customer offering. This can range from the short-term configuration of planning processes to long-term logistical strategy, shaping the future growth of Ocado.

Our state-of-the-art warehouse operation is the start of our customer fulfillment chain, picking the orders that will ultimately be delivered to our customers.  Our warehouse lanning tools and processes have evolved considerably in recent months, as new robotic warehouses have come on line and our UK operation scales up and increases in complexity.
