Our ambition series looks at three very different organisations who are applying innovative solutions to help address some of the biggest challenges facing our industry and that of our customers.
Hema, a new retail concept in China is delivering in under 30 minutes.
Launched by e-comm giant, Alibaba, Hema is an ambitious new retailer in China. It’s a physical place to shop, a dine-in restaurant and a distribution centre for online orders, all rolled into one. It also offers 30-minute delivery within a 3km radius in major Chinese cities.
Soft Robotics, an ambitious Boston start-up is having a huge effect on supply chains across the e-commerce, advanced manufacturing and food production industries.
If you’ve had any experience with robotics, you’ll know that robots are very good at simple tasks. What they haven’t been very good at, however, is picking up and packing a range of different items, particularly delicate food items like eggs or strawberries, or flimsy apparel items. That is, until now.
Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is a non-conformist group of architects moulding our planet around people.
BIG’s commitment to pushing boundaries is unrivaled. Taking an unshackled approach to the past and putting human experience at the centre of every creation, BIG’s view is that future cities are going to be a lot more about how we live and work together.
