Imagine a future where same-minute shopping and delivery is actually possible. A future where with the push of a button an autonomous delivery vehicle or bot arrives right on time for those last-minute holiday gift deliveries. Seems too good to be true, right?
KPMG predicts the development of autonomous delivery vehicles will revolutionize the current consumer e-commerce environment, drive consumer demand for more and faster deliveries and lead to an entirely new product delivery ecosystem for shoppers and buyers of goods and services.
“E-commerce has been a tremor, but autonomous delivery vehicles now represent an earthquake of a magnitude not seen before,” said Gary Silberg, (@slfdriveSilberg) KPMG’s Automotive sector leader. “For consumers the delivery experience will go from next-day to same-day to next-hour to even next-minute!”
