FedEx have recently unveiled their SameDay bot with the aim to make “last mile” deliveries more efficient.
The SameDay Bot is powered by battery, has a top speed of 10 mph and is also autonomous allowing it to navigate itself around objects and people. At some point in the future, FedEx wants to expand this service to retailers eventually making robots a standard part of its same-day delivery service. Today these bots are being utilised to courier packages between the company’s offices at its headquarters in Memphis.
The European Union on Wednesday released a preliminary list of U.S. imports to be considered for tariffs. The list includes products such as seafood, fresh and dried produce, nuts, alcohol, chemicals, adhesives, suitcases, handbags and tractors, representing a total of $20 billion of U.S. exports to the EU.
The EU’s list follows a proposal last week from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) to put tariffs on $11 billion worth of EU imports. At the time, the EU said it was ready to retaliate in kind.
Year by year, Amazon continues to grow holding its title as the largest e-commerce marketplace and cloud computing platform in the world. To further this expansion, Amazon will soon be using frabic tents to increase its logistics operations in eight states. These states include; Tennessee, South Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, Colorado, Louisiana, Kentucky and Idaho.
These ‘delivery stations’, are used to store and sort packages before they’re sent to their end destination. These large fabric tents are only temporary as the company builds more permanent warehouses in the surrounding area. Nevertheless, this is a clear example of Amazon’s ambitious aim to expand its logistics network for delivering packages ordered online.
