The grocery delivery service – which is powered by zero carbon electricity – is responsible for mobilising small white robots to transport items from shop to home.
From December, the service will be available at three more branches of Tesco at Link Road, Spinney Hill and Limehurst Road as well as three Co-op branches at Bushland Road, Birchfield Road and Bellinge.
“As part of Starship’s recent expansion to serve a further 31,000 households, our robots are now delivering from three more branches of Tesco and three more Co-ops,” commented a Starship Robots spokesman.
This comes after ex-Morrisons boss Dalton Phillips joined Starship Technologies’ board in September to support the autonomous delivery service in retail and customer experience.
Starship Technologies first partnered with Tesco to trial the robotic service in Milton Keynes during the summer of 2019. Currently, the delivery service is available to over 150,000 residents to Northampton and is set to expand further.
