Amazon and the British supermarket chain Co-op expand their partnership! Allowing robotic home delivery!
The British supermarket chain Co-op has announced a new partnership with Amazon Prime to transport groceries through robots in the future to improve the efficiency of home delivery. The company hopes to increase online sales from 70 million pounds to 200 million pounds through the partnership.
Through the service, Prime members will be able to shop for Co-op items on Amazon for a scheduled two-hour slot each day. Orders over £40 will be eligible for free delivery, starting at £15. The service was launched in Glasgow on September 16 and is expected to roll out across the UK by the end of 2021.
The Co-op currently delivers these goods through food delivery group Deliveroo and robotic delivery company Starship Technologies. The number of robots delivering groceries is expected to increase from 200 to 500 by the end of this year.
AMZ123 has learned that the Co-op's partnership with Amazon has come under fire from the GMB trade union after Amazon was accused by the union of not paying its fair share of taxes in the U.K. and treating drivers who deliver goods poorly.
A spokesperson for the Co-op Group responded that they were not breaking any ethical or principled issues and that the partnership was designed to make the service more efficient and convenient for consumers.
