Cities are facing a sharp increase in online deliveries. The internet brings chaos to the streets of New York, London, Paris and other big cities. Natalie Sherman – Business reporter of BBC – covers a story of stacking up problems in cities due to the growth of e-commerce and e-grocery – including city traffic and pollution.
Cities in Europe and Asia have barred deliveries during certain hours to tackle it at least a bit.
The article raises the question: “Will the technological advances help cities resolve their current traffic and pollution problems?”
We believe, that our company – Retail Robotics – has the right solution to this problem. Our robotic solutions for e-commerce (ParcelHero) and e-grocery (Arctan) – can hugely decrease the number of delivery trucks in the cities – thus lowering traffic and CO2 pollution even 10-fold! At the same time lowering the cost of last-mile delivery by a minimum 80%. We hope to bring it to NY, Paris, London and other big cities soon!
