FedEx unveils latest autonomous delivery robot


FedEx Corp. has announced a development in cutting-edge delivery solutions to meet the rapidly changing needs of consumers – the FedEx SameDay Bot – an autonomous delivery device designed to help retailers make same-day and last-mile deliveries to their customers.

With the FedEx SameDay Bot, retailers will be able to accept orders from nearby customers and deliver them by bot directly to customers’ homes or businesses the same day. FedEx is collaborating with companies such as AutoZone, Lowe’s, Pizza Hut, Target, Walgreens and Walmart to help assess retailers’ autonomous same-day and last-mile delivery needs.

On average, more than 60 per cent of merchants’ customers live within three miles of a store location, demonstrating the opportunity for on-demand, hyper-local delivery services.
