Check out this week’s coolest retail technology reveals — Retail Technology Innovation Hub


Amazon

Amazon is gearing up to open an Amazon Fresh checkout-free location in Chingford, London.

No news on the exact launch date. But we can reveal that this will be the e-commerce giant’s eighth such UK convenience store to feature Just Walk Out Shopping tech, which was pioneered at the Amazon Go offering in the States.

The other six are in Camden, Ealing, Wembley Park, White City, Canary Wharf and Dalston, whilst a seventh one is due to launch in Holborn soon. 

Walmart

Walmart is making daily deliveries from a dark store to a Neighborhood Market in Bentonville, Arkansas, using an autonomous vehicle that doesn’t carry a safety driver, a world first, according to the retailer and its technology partner, Gatik.

“This milestone signifies a revolutionary breakthrough for the autonomous trucking industry,” says Gautam Narang, CEO and Co-founder, Gatik. 

“Our deployment in Bentonville is not a one time demonstration. These are frequent, revenue-generating, daily runs that our trucks are completing safely in a range of conditions on public roads, demonstrating the commercial and technical advantages of fully driverless operations on the middle mile.”

Gopuff

US-based rapid delivery startup, Gopuff, has announced a launch across the UK. 

It is now operational in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield. And it aims to be in 33 UK cities by mid 2022. 

The arrival in the UK (Gopuff’s first market outside of the US) was driven by the company’s acquisitions of Fancy and Dija earlier this year.
