Cleveron’s 501 robot has been used by three Estonian grocery chains to hand over shopping to customers.
The three grocers, Coop Estonia, Selver and Prisma, have installed the robots in their park parks in Tallinn. Now, customers place orders online, Three grocers in Estonia have deployed the Cleveron 501 robot to hand over online orders to customers. Not unlike using a parcel locker, customers place online orders, select a pick-up time, receive an order code and then receive their shopping when they enter their PIN code.
There is some evidence that the changes toward a preference for contactless delivery may not change back after the pandemic emergency passes according to Cleveron.
Arno Kutt, CEO of Cleveron, said, “We’ve always felt that e-commerce and online grocery shopping is the future, and that is why we created our grocery robot. The crisis brought the future to us sooner.”
According to Kutt, the grocery chains were keen to use the machines and they were installed and running within just two weeks.
