Albertsons, Takeoff to pilot robotic e-commerce grocery fulfillment

Mobile Payments Today

Albertsons, one of the largest grocery chains in the U.S.,  entered an agreement with Takeoff Technologies to test an AI-based microfulfillment technology that will help drive new efficiencies in the grocery chain’s growing online shopping business.

Boise, Idaho-based Albertsons said that Takeoff’s “hyper-local” fulfillment technology will be tested at an existing store, a company spokesperson told Mobile Payments Today.. Customers will be able to order groceries through the existing Albertsons interface and have their orders processed through the automated Takeoff system, which uses a series of totes and conveyors to move the items to a store employee, who then prepares the groceries for the customer, she said.
