Let’s lead together.
As the two sustaining partners, Eddy and I have an excitement about what we see unfolding. We’re leading but in some ways we feel like we’re being led–by an opportunity that is there right before us and through the others who have come around this effort–our board, other industry leaders like Ford Motor Company, Bosch, PlugNPlay, Stantec, and so many others. Collaboration is at the very heart of this effort–we are looking to use software, robotics and autonomous vehicle technology to solve a big problem by facilitating collaboration in new ways at every step along the way. We know that together we can accomplish something really spectacular. That’s why we invite you, “Let’s Work Together.”
Perfecting last-mile delivery with AI.
