Driverless delivery vehicles: the revolution on the last mile

In the year 2025 around 15 billion parcels are expected to be delivered to non-business consignees in Europe, most of them within cities. At the same time, cities are to become cleaner and more sustainable - less traffic congestion, less pollution.

As a logistics service provider, DPDgroup faces the challenge of reconciling this requirement with the massive increase in parcel volumes. For this reason DPDgroup, together with Groupe Renault, has developed scenarios for parcel deliveries to be made driverless vehicles.
