CommonSense Robotics To Provide Packing Robots For Super-Pharm Deliveries
April 11, 2018 | Sources tell Israeli daily Globes that online orders at Israeli pharmaceutical chain Super-Pharm will soon be taken off shelves, packed and shipped by robots. The network has hired Tel Aviv-based startup CommonSense Robotics to operate a logistics center where products will automatically be packed by robots. The center is scheduled to launch in the next six months. Super-Pharm will pay Commonsense Robotics a monthly retainer to operate the center, provide robot equipment, and employ workers. The service is expected to shorten delivery time, cut labor costs for retailers, and even cut delivery cost. CommonSense Robotics, a Tel Aviv-based company founded in 2015 aiming to help online grocery retailers offer on-demand, one-hour deliveries using robotics and artificial intelligence, raised $20 million in a Series A funding round in February.
