I was trying to figure out how to move some items from a distance without using a lot of belts, so I went for the bots, but seems that with the basic robots technology I can't do that, so I guess I'll just have to wait until unlocking the other chests to do something useful with them, right?

The use of early logistics bot is to supply yourself with them. Provider and storage chests are fine for that. Though even then you need some of the robot speed upgrades to be practical

not just to suply yourself, you can also use them for blueprint building. at certain point (usualy still far from having requester chest) i start building logistic area and automating building production, ten i can use bots to expand factory just by laying blueprint.

The use of "logistics bots" was deliberate. Of course you can also use the construction bots
