H-E-B Opens New E-Commerce Fulfillment Center with Swisslog Automation

H-E-B opens a new e-commerce fulfillment center in Texas, powered by Swisslog automation for faster curbside and home delivery.

H-E-B recently announced the opening of a new e-commerce fulfillment center in Cibolo, Texas, to support curbside and home delivery orders in Cibolo, New Braunfels, and surrounding cities in the San Antonio area. 

The 55,000-square-foot facility marks H-E-B’s eighth e-commerce fulfillment center, which the company has opened since 2018. It features AutoStore, which is empowered by Swisslog and operates on synchronized intelligence from Swisslog’s SynQ software. The most recent of these facilities was opened in Plano, Texas, in July 2023

Five members of the Swisslog team attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the facility’s opening and showcase the two companies’ ongoing partnership. Swisslog continues to help H-E-B achieve its automated fulfillment goals and provide unmatched service and support to its communities. 

H-E-B said the e-commerce fulfillment center further expands the retailer’s commitment to integrating innovative technologies that drive omnichannel growth and provide a more convenient and better shopping experience for Texans. The company further explained that these facilities have enabled H-E-B to grow its supply chain capacity to help improve and power the expansion of its curbside and home delivery services, which are available at more than 270 stores in Texas.
