Meet The Startup Using Both Automation And Drivers For Last-Mile Delivery
Boxbot, with a fleet of bright, modular delivery trucks, is helping more retailers enable last-mile delivery by providing the flexibility of choosing between human drivers and bots
There are plenty of last-mile delivery startups these days, each with their own take on the costly, difficult process. Now Boxbot, a new delivery startup, is entering the market with a new concept—enabling the choice of self-driving vehicles or human delivery.
In partnership with delivery company OnTrac, Boxbot will use a fleet of five special vans with human drivers on top of its existing trucks. The modular design of the trucks, which feature an unmissable orange and blue design, will allow for the transportation of most any shape or size of package. Customers choose a one-hour window for their deliveries and can choose between a driverless vehicle or a human driver for their last-mile delivery.
