Over 80,000 households across Northampton can now benefit from on-demand robot grocery delivery thanks to extension of an innovative scheme.
Starship Technologies and the Co-op have announced an additional 20,000 households in Northampton are now able to receive convenient, on-demand grocery delivery via robots.
A further five Co-op stores across the town are now offering delivery through a fleet of Starship robots, bringing the total number of households across Northampton able to access Starship’s service in the area to over 80,000.
Orders are made through the Starship food delivery app with groceries picked fresh in local Co-op stores and delivered quickly and conveniently in as little as one hour or less.
Since first launching the service in Northampton in November 2020, Starship, working with the support of West Northamptonshire Council, has continued to expand its footprint and offer the ease and convenience of autonomous delivery to more local residents.
Cllr Phil Larratt, West Northamptonshire Council’s Portfolio Holder for Environment, Highways, Transport and Waste, said: “We’re delighted that the Starship robots have been rolled out to thousands more homes in Northampton, offering our residents a convenient, carbon-free way to get their groceries. Harnessing the latest technology and innovative schemes like this will play an increasingly important role as we look at ways of cutting emissions and making West Northants a more sustainable place to live for the future.”
