Big cities already suffer from a rise in CO2 emissions, pollution, traffic, congestion and noise caused by an increased volume of deliveries.
According to the World Economic Forum (“The future of the last mile ecosystem”, January 2020), by 2030 growing demand for e‑commerce delivery will result in:
- 36% more vehicles in inner cities
- a rise in CO2 emissions by 6 million tons
- 21% higher congestion.
The demand for last-mile delivery is soaring and is expected to grow by 78% worldwide by 2030. This is why we urgently need to find and deploy sustainable, robotics options in the last mile delivery, supporting city evolution and saving our planet.
