Future tense of Mettere



I'm a bit confused in lesson 5.5 where it has  metterò  = (I) will take. 

Mettere means to put so future tense first person would be  metterò = I will put.
means to take so future tense first person would be prenderò = I will take. 

Is using metterò  to mean "I will take" a figure of speech where they would use "put" where in English we would use he word "take" ?

I also noticed Va bene , grazie. Quanto tempo ci metterà per arrivare ? means  Okay, thank you. How long will (it) take to get there?  Similar thing where metterà is used to say will take.



why in lesson 5,5 it ci mettera and not lo mettera
