ASDA plans to launch robotically operated click and collect units in the UK. The first unit will be introduced in the North West area in February 2015, and then rolled out to locations across the South West.
- The robotic arms will deliver the orders to shopper’s pods in just 60 seconds and would need assistance only for re-filling the stock.
- As compared to the Traditional lockers, these units will have much higher stock capacity. However, the exact size and scale has not yet been confirmed by the retailer.
- ASDA will confirm the number of units to be launched in early 2015.
