DUBLIN, Jan.26, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Autonomous Delivery Vehicle Industry Report, 2020” report was added to the offering of ResearchAndMarkets.com.
Stand-Alone Delivery is divided into Indoor Stand-Alone Delivery and Outdoor Stand-Alone Delivery. As a result, there are autonomous delivery vehicles indoors (also known as “indoor delivery robots”) and outdoors.
Autonomous indoor delivery market
To date, autonomous indoor delivery robots have been available in restaurants, hotels, office buildings, hospitals, Internet cafes, KTVs, and shopping malls, and have been vigorously promoted among ‘contactless’ services. For the prevention and control of the COVID-19 pandemic. The year 2020 saw faster deployment and operation of smart equipment such as autonomous indoor delivery robots.
For example, many catering companies such as Country Garden Robot Restaurant, Haidilao, De Zhuang, Xiabu Xiabu, Dadong, Hong Kong Maxim’s, etc. have started using autonomous delivery robots to serve food in their stores to reduce labor costs and improve safety. meals.
Comparatively, China remains ahead of foreign countries in the development of indoor delivery robots, where emerging players represented by Pudu Technology, Keenon Robotics, Excelland AI, YOGO, etc. have already offered commodities and actively entered the multiple-scenario market alongside relentless iteration and rapid implementation of their technologies. In 2019, Pudu Technology has shipped over 5,000 units, Keenon Robotics 3,000 units and other mid-market companies over hundreds of units each.
Outdoor Autonomous Delivery Market
Faced with the huge market demand for instant delivery and express delivery along with declining workforce in China, large companies are enthusiastically deploying autonomous delivery vehicles. Besides start-ups like Neolix, IdriverPlus, and White Rhino, e-commerce and logistics companies such as JD.com, Meituan, Cainiao, Suning and China Post are sparing no effort to grow their autonomous outdoor delivery business. . Autonomous delivery vehicles are produced in small quantities in China and have yet to gain significant momentum, as reported by the companies involved.
Constrained by imperfect policies and regulations, technologies and scenario configurations, the outdoor autonomous delivery vehicles are still in pilot operation. Yet the industry has grown in 2020, with the expansion of “one-vehicle piloting” operations to “closed scenarios / fixed-route fleet operations”, and even to a “control operation”. autonomous delivery in town ”.
E-commerce logistics companies thus deploy external autonomous delivery vehicles in three ways: (i) to develop independently or to partner with start-ups for deployment via logistics channels, for example, Alibaba self-develop and deploy the Xiaomanlv autonomous robot via logistics Cainiao Distribution; (ii) work with governments, eg Meituan and People’s Government of Shunyi District, Beijing have cooperated to deploy in the region; (iii) to partner with market players such as retailers and supermarkets, for example, White Rhino Auto (Beijing) Technologies Co., Ltd., together with Yonghui Superstores, introduced standalone retail delivery.
Meituan’s autonomous delivery cars that entered service in Beijing’s Shunyi District in early 2020, were found in 15 communities in that district and surrounding areas, and delivered a total of over 10,000 orders for more than 270 consecutive days at the end of October, with the support of the local cooperative …
