Kroger Redefines Customer Experience with Robotics Delivery Technology
Kroger announced it will offer more Americans delivery through the addition of a new customer fulfillment center leveraging advanced robotics technology and creative solutions to redefine the customer experience. This expansion represents an extension of a partnership between Kroger and Ocado. In 2018, the companies announced a collaboration to establish a delivery network that combines artificial intelligence, advanced robotics, and automation, bringing first-of-its-kind technology to America.

The delivery network relies on highly automated fulfillment centers. At the hub sites, robots traverse 3D grids orchestrated by proprietary air-traffic control systems in the spectrum. The bots retrieve products from the grid and items are sorted for delivery by algorithms that ensure items are intelligently packed. Each order is optimized to fit into the lowest number of bags, reducing plastic use.
