Retail Technology – Yandex Self-Driving Group Teams Up With Majid Al Futtaim

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. Here, we chat to Artem Fokin, head of business development for Russia's Yandex Self-Driving Group, about its plans to develop autonomous delivery alongside Majid Al Futtaim in Dubai.

Yandex Self-Driving Group announced in November that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with Majid Al Futtaim, operators of the Carrefour brand in the Middle East, to introduce autonomous robot delivery to its stores in Dubai. A pilot programme is due to launch in early 2022, which will see shoppers in selected neighbourhoods receive online orders via Yandex autonomous delivery robots.

ESM: How much of a role do you think autonomous delivery will play in grocery retail in the future?
