Robotic last-mile deliveries are expected to bring in more money around the world. By 2030, they are expected to bring in $670 million, up from $70 million in 2022.
A new study from the international technology intelligence company ABI Research supports this.
Also, the value of shipments moved by mobile, self-driving robots could reach $3.3 billion by 2030.
This growth is driving competition, alliances, and investments that address ongoing labor shortages and rising fuel prices.
Lack of profitability and Robotic last-mile delivery times are among the top worries for shops, eateries, and last-mile delivery service providers worldwide.
“As inflation and vehicle costs climb dramatically, these organizations are finding it difficult to hike prices on skeptical customers and businesses while wanting to safeguard profits,” says Adhish Luitel, senior analyst for supply chain management and logistics at ABI Research.
Key goals include growing to meet demand and customer expectations while cutting costs for labor, vehicle maintenance, and gas.
Starship Technologies, Nuro, Kiwibot, Udelv, and Amazon Scout are some of the vendors.
According to Luitel, “the usage of automation will increase as governments boost regulatory approvals, more businesses scale revenue-producing processes, and both consumers and businesses find value in low-touch, speedy delivery of their goods.”
Companies will be able to measure not only their financial performance but also how the public will react as they learn to share their sidewalks, roads, and crosswalks with these effective robots as they move from college campuses to the suburbs and city streets.
