Waymo self-driving minivans to deliver UPS packages during pilot in Phoenix

Thursday 30 January 2020 | 09:53 CET | News
Waymo announced a new strategic partnership with UPS, starting with a first-of-its-kind deal for the Waymo Driver to deliver packages on behalf of the national parcel delivery carrier. Waymo's self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivans will shuttle packages from UPS Stores in the Metro Phoenix area to the UPS Tempe hub as part of a pilot that will explore customer and operational benefits and illustrate the ways in which the Waymo Driver can deliver on behalf of clients safely, efficiently, and, eventually, at scale.
