Market leaders including DPD, DHL and FedEx are among the companies that have chosen to use Bedeo’s technology due to its unmatched time to market speed.

Wayve’s tech will be used in a 12-month long delivery trial using Ocado delivery vans on some of its busy London routes.

A human driver will be present to oversee the tests however, the two companies said.

“This is a recognition that we’re uniquely positioned to build a technology than can deliver for the last-mile delivery space as well adapt and scale globally,” Wayve chief executive Alex Kendall told Reuters.
