In the first quarter of the year, our partner Ocado Technology announced its expansion with two international partnerships – Groupe Casino in France and Sobeys in Canada.
The two agreements set out plans for initiation of the development of Customer Fulfilment Centre (“CFC”) using Ocado’s proprietary Mechanical Handling Equipment (“MHE”) to serve the greater Paris and Toronto arias. Ocado is the world’s leading dedicated online grocery retailer with a strong technological advantage. Its division Ocado Technology is developing smart platforms in the field of e-commerce, AI and Robotics, and currently has operation offices in Spain, Poland and Bulgaria.
The development of the two projects is expected to take approximately two years and will result in a further expansion of Ocado Technology team in Bulgaria and the opening of new positions in the field of AI, Machine Learning and Data Science.
