Kroger launches self-driving grocery trucks

Kroger, an American retail company that operates supermarkets and multi-department stores throughout the United States, will deploy three autonomous box trucks to transport orders from a Customer Fulfillment Center in Dallas to local stores for delivery or pickup.

The cold chain-capable trucks will transport ambient, frozen and refrigerated products and make deliveries to local Kroger stores multiple times daily, seven days per week. The move is expected to increase Kroger’s speed and responsiveness in fulfilling online orders and reduce its middle-mile supply chain costs.

The use of autonomous vehicles in retail operations is expected to increase in the future.
