Exclusive: Safeway unveils remote-controlled food delivery carts
8 Mar 2021
If you’re a Safeway customer in Northern California, your grocery delivery person might soon seem a bit clunky.
That’s because it’s a remote-controlled, zero-emission delivery cart.
Albertsons Companies, which owns the Safeway chain of supermarkets, is joining forces with Tortoise to have what is essentially a robot bring food and household items to homes within a 3-mile radius of a Safeway. Tests are running at stores in the California towns of Tracy and Windsor.
