Retail Technology – Ocado Invests In Autonomous Delivery

In the most recent edition of ESM, we spoke to a number of retailers across Europe about some of the technological innovations they have implemented into their businesses over the past year. We caught up with Lawrence Hene, chief product officer, Ocado, to discuss the online operator's recent investment in autonomous delivery services.

In October of last year, Ocado Group announced a £10 million (€11.7 million) investment in Wayve, a self-driving technology start-up, as it seeks to expand its autonomous grocery delivery solutions. The announcement followed a similar investment in Oxford-based autonomous vehicle software company Oxbotica, as the group continues to seek out ways to make last-mile deliveries more efficient.

ESM: What will the recent investment mean for Ocado’s logistics operation?
