Robot dry cleaners and giant electric trucks

Picked up my dry cleaned jacket (a bird decided to take a dump from above on me) and discovered that the pick up system at 5asec - one of a chain of dry cleaners - is really cool.

Prepay when you drop off your item then, on the day of pick up, you scan your receipt (white box on the left), the computer finds your item, the conveyor delivers it, the glass window retracts and a robotic arm hands you your item.

Walking home I came across this 100% electric truck with a build-in shipping dock at the rear. The truck, by Libner Group, carries a mini-truck for making deliveries (see photo below)
