Amazon Go potrebbe aprire a Londra
Il servizio Amazon Go potrebbe presto arrivare in Europa. Secondo quanto riportato da Reuters e The Grocer, i negozi fisici ma senza casse ideati dal colosso dell’e-commerce, già presenti negli Stati Uniti in città come Seattle, New York, Chicago e San Francisco, dovrebbero arrivare anche nel vecchio continente, partendo da Londra. Tuttavia, sempre secondo le indiscrezioni, il piano di espansione potrebbe riguardare anche altre aree europee, magari anche l’Italia. (Fonte: Retail Institute Italy)

On-demand logistics startup Lalamove raises $300M for Asia growth and becomes a unicorn
Lalamove,  a Hong Kong-based on-demand logistics startup, has closed a $300 million Series D round as it seeks expansion across Asia. In doing so, the company has officially entered the unicorn club. Founded in 2013 by Stanford graduate Shing Chow, Lalamove provides logistics and delivery services in a similar style to ride-hailing apps like Uber  but it is primarily focused on business and corporate customers. That gives it more favorable economics and a more loyal customer base than its consumer-focused peers, who face discount wars to woo fickle consumers. (Fonte: TechCrunch)

Lyft launches surge-free, shared rides
Somewhat similar to Uber’s  Express Pool option, Lyft just launched Shared Saver to help people spend less money for shared rides. But what makes Lyft’s  option more attractive is that riders will never experience surge pricing. Shared Saver rides require customers to walk to a designated pickup location, which will be a maximum of a few blocks away, to meet your driver and co-riders. (Fonte: TechCrunch)
