Delivery robots are now being trialled on the pavements of London, and the future for this technology will be a key focus for the Supply Chain Conference which takes place in March.
Sandra Sooläte, head of UK business development at Starship Technologies will look at the flexibility of a robot working with retailers and their clients, as well as the success rates of their deliveries and the challenges using the robot. She will also consider the future for using robots for deliveries.
The conference, which takes place at the Grand Connaught Rooms on 20th and 21st March 2018, will include a presentation from Severn Trent, the Overall Winner in the 2017 Supply Chain Excellence Awards.
Chris Wand, head of supply chain & logistics at Severn Trent, will explore the different strategies that were used to create a better working environment for the public and third sectors and how this improved efficiencies working within all departments of the organisation.
