DPD and Cleveron Mobility claim to be the first to deliver a package via autonomous delivery in Europe

DPD Eesti and Cleveron Mobility have claimed to be the first to deliver a customer a package via an autonomous delivery vehicle in Europe.

The delivery was performed in Tallinn, Estonia, with a larger scale service earmarked to be launched in cooperation with DPD in Viljandi in the near future.

The robots are able to operate on public roads and work within a radius of five kilometres.

The vehicle is manufactured by Cleveron Mobility, with delivery taking place under the DPD banner.

“The ecommerce market is continuing to grow rapidly in the developed world,” Cleveron Mobility CEO Arno Kütt said.

“And it requires more and more transportation to meet the demand, but with the steady decline of drivers, we see that autonomous solutions are key in satisfying last mile deliveries globally.”

“Cleveron Mobility definitely wants to be among the world leaders in this field and achieve the position of market leader.”

DPD Eesti CEO Remo Kirss added: “We see that the introduction of autonomous robotic couriers in parcel delivery is a very important next step among environmentally friendly delivery methods.”

“We are extremely pleased to be the first parcel delivery company in Europe to launch a service with a driverless autonomous courier robot in a public urban space.”

“This will allow us to continue to introduce innovative solutions through practice to the general public and to encourage residents and consumers to make environmentally conscious decisions when choosing services and products.”
