What is a dark store?

Dark stores are those shops converted into operations and logistics warehouses set up for the preparation and shipment of orders, purchased through an e-commerce, online shop or application. Generally, dark stores tend to be located in large urban centres or in places with a high population density and are characterised by being shops without customers.
These dark shops are designed exclusively to meet the growing demand for online orders and are therefore strategically organised to enable employees to complete orders as quickly as possible and to fulfil the maximum number of orders. This is because they are technologically adapted with automated processes.
