Supermarket giant Tesco are trialling a delivery robot as a new idea for future development, as they are looking to serve their customers better by working with technology and save on costs.
The autonomous delivery devices can carry items within a four-mile radius, they are being made by Starship who have a collaboration.
The devices are currently being tested at Tesco’s Milton Keynes store which allows customers to place an order from the supermarket via an app.
Tesco’s ambition is to improve delivery options and make them more convenient for smaller “top up shops.”
Bruno Monteyne, an analyst at Bernstein who attended Capital Markets Day said, “The next step driving Booker forward will be additional products and services, and a major step-up in the service proposition further down the line (eg. same day delivery).”
