SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With millions of Americans forced indoors during the COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. online sales grew more than 40% in Q2. Already on a 20-year game-changing trajectory, e-commerce got a douse of gasoline in 2020 that is not cooling down. To meet the demand, retailers like Walmart have gone outside the United States, where robotics are more common, to find tools to automate the purchase assembly process. Today, through a partnership between California-based Luxer One and Northern Europe-based Cleveron, this technology is now available in America.
Cleveron, a technology company located in Estonia, specializes in robotic solutions designed specifically for automating retail processes; and has been Walmart's robotics partner for the past five years.
Luxer One, the U.S. leader in APP-controlled "smart" locker systems, has designed locker systems for Macy's, Foot Locker and one of the country's largest home improvement retailers.
Fundamentally, the partnership is a sales and distribution relationship. However, with both Luxer One and Cleveron being technology companies, the vision is that they will combine their strengths to innovate beyond what is even imaginable today.
"One sector of retail where I see an immediate need for our combined skills is grocery," says Luxer One Founder and CEO, Arik Levy. "This industry has been slower to adopt smart locker and automation technology because of the added need for refrigeration with many of their products. We're going to solve that and completely change the traditional grocery shopping experience. Cleveron's grocery robot combines different temperature zones, making it possible to store both perishable and frozen goods. The grocery robots are used by a number of companies around the world."
Luxer One will be presenting their vision for how retail will evolve over the next ten years with contactless technology at the virtual Shoptalk retail conference in October. To learn how to tune in, go to luxerone.com and click on the "Join us at Shoptalk" link.
