The founders of tech startup LOXO officially presented LOXO Alpha at the Kursaal in Bern on December 6. The electric delivery vehicle will debut on public roads in a few short months. It will represent the first commercial application of an autonomous vehicle making last-mile deliveries in Switzerland.
The launch appeals to companies seeking to solve enduring problems in the “last-mile delivery” sector. Their low margins, high delivery costs, and driver shortages are exactly the shortcomings that the company solves.
The Bern kickoff event attracted e-commerce retailers, logisticians, excited futurists, and interested members of the public sector in an upbeat celebration of green thinking and future-proof innovation.
“LOXO’s launch event demonstrates that autonomous delivery is now becoming a reality,” said company CEO Amin Amini. “We are proud to have taken this step in the most innovative country, Switzerland.”
The start of a revolution
The LOXO transport solution aspires for nothing less than to revolutionize autonomous mobility and e-commerce. It aims to become the standard for delivering online-ordered merchandise to consumers efficiently, reliably and with no CO2 emissions.
If the Bern launch is any indication, the company is off to a very good start.
