SXSW 2020

Delivering the Future of Commerce, Autonomously

The last mile is the final step from retailer to consumer, and a virtual battlefield for companies that offer delivery services. With 70% of consumers expected to purchase food and beverages online by 2024, the last-mile stakes are especially high for grocery retailers.

Hear how the largest food retailer in the U.S. and a startup run by former Google engineers are changing the future of last-mile logistics with the world’s first fleet of fully autonomous, on-road vehicles.

Is it possible for advanced robotics to transport goods quickly, safely and affordably? Can unmanned vehicles deliver a truly seamless customer experience? Are laws and regulations a barrier to mainstream success?

Meet Kroger and Nuro – the $1 billion backed startup – at SXSW to find out.
