World record: Starship hits 2 million autonomous deliveries
Starship, the world’s leading provider of autonomous delivery services, today announced that it has passed the major milestone of 2,000 000 commercial deliveries.
Starship’s fleet of over 1000 robots have travelled more than 2,700,000 miles to date. The company’s robots are operating commercially every day in local neighbourhoods and university and corporate campuses across five different time zones. Starship has the largest fleet of autonomous delivery robots in the world.
Using Starship’s delivery service helps people save time, reduce congestion and reduce pollution. Thanks to the use of the autonomous delivery service, an estimated 325,720 car journeys have been avoided.
The most popular products ordered last year include milk and coffee. More than 420,000 bottles of milk, 220,000 coffees, and 106,000 pizzas have been delivered to people all over the world.
Pol Oliver, Chief Financial Officer of Starship Technologies, said: “This is definitely an important day for us – exceeding two million autonomous deliveries, after hitting one million just nine months ago is proof that our service is growing fast. We’re being asked to expand to more cities and campuses around the world as quickly as possible, showing the need for a sustainable, ethical and low cost delivery service. This is just the beginning of our journey!”
Elo Ilus, who lives in Tallinn, Estonia received the 2,000,000th order from Starship. She said: “Robots bring joy to children the most. They are always very excited when our orders arrive. Starship has made our daily lives much faster, more convenient and let´s be honest – even happier.”
