Wednesday 27 March 2019 13:57 CET | News

Ocado Group has entered into a technology partnership with Coles Group to develop Coles Online’s grocery business using the UK retailer’s Smart Platform.

Coles Online will be able to serve a larger customer base through two new robotic customer-fulfilment centres operated by both companies – one in Sydney and one in Melbourne, according to Ocado. It expects the centres to be operational within four years.

Coles will pay Ocado signing fees upfront and during the development phase, as well as ongoing sales-based fees for Ocado’s suite of support and engineering services.
