Rollo to Debut First EV Delivery Fleet in Las Vegas
Rollo said that its Las Vegas EV Fleet, a low-carbon solution for last-mile logistics, will be available for the first time. Rollo will offer free pick-up for legacy carriers, GPS tracking, and same-day delivery in Las Vegas, the company's first test market. The company hopes to expand to other major cities in the future.
Poor customer service, no driver communication, difficult processes for the shipper, need to include the exact weight and dimensions of each product, unexpected surcharges, inconsistent delivery, and, in many cases, no proof of delivery—to name a few—are some of the challenges that shippers face. Rollo is upending the shipping industry by providing clients with a seamless experience.
With e-commerce rising at a 23% annual rate, the growth in last-mile delivery vehicles is increasing greenhouse gas emissions. By 2026, nearly 300 billion items will be delivered annually, making it more important than ever to make last-mile delivery more economically and environmentally sustainable.
“We are bringing legacy shipping into the 21st century, which of course includes using Electric Vehicles to prove that shipping can and should be painless for everyone, including the environment,” said Kevin Faro, Founder and CEO of Rollo. “Industry predictions are forecasting a 36% rise in the number of delivery vehicles in the world’s top 100 cities by 2030, leading to an emissions increase of over 30%. We are doing this to minimise our carbon footprint as a powerful e-commerce ally for businesses looking to ship fast and easily."
These features are available to everyone who has the Rollo app. There is no requirement for a Rollo printer or even shipping materials. As part of its plan to make the last mile easier, Rollo will use a fleet of all-electric vehicles. This way, parcels won't have to be driven to a shipping office and wait in long lines.
