PickUpPort™

Provides frictionless in-store pickup options directly from the AutoStore system.

Next-Level Omnichannel Strategy

PickUpPort is a public-facing Port enabling contactless in-store pickup options directly from the AutoStore system for online orders. The PickUpPort allows retailers to easily and cost-effectively deploy a BOPIS (Buy Online Pickup In-Store) omnichannel retail strategy, attract and retain customers, and ultimately drive revenue growth.  

Available in narrow or wide, the PickUpPort does not take up additional space beyond the Grid when locked.
