The Future Is Knocking
Learn more about the work we’re doing with Roxo™, the FedEx SameDay Bot, our first autonomous delivery bot prototype.
Think about how you’ve experienced this. It could be a show-stopping new product roll-out or a groundbreaking partnership - catapulting your business to the next level. Maybe it’s global expansion or a prestigious accolade or award. Working on such breakthrough projects can be immeasurably rewarding.
I’ve seen a lot of exciting change in my time at FedEx. But one of the most exhilarating milestones I’ve witnessed in my 25-years with the company? It’s got to be the development of our first prototype autonomous delivery robot, Roxo™, the FedEx SameDay Bot.
From future-forward to a tech-driven future
Meet Roxo™, the FedEx SameDay Bot
Where now meets next: Roxo is making his way to Japan!
Roxo is embarking on his first-ever trip to Asia! This summer, our same-day bot will visit Japan!
This has been a genuine team effort and a long time in the making. Roxo’s arrival in Asia against the backdrop of COVID poses many challenges, from moving expert tech personnel across the world to an ever-shifting travel landscape.
Japan, of course, feels like an appropriate homecoming for Roxo. Japanese society has famously embraced robots in a big way, and the region is at the forefront of the integration of robotics into customer service and consumer culture.
But let’s not forget the rest of Asia: a hugely diverse region of testing climates and extreme weather events; densely populated cities; unique public transport and varied terrains. No small challenge for an urban delivery bot.
The bottom line? We’re excited for the future of innovation in Asia
One thing’s for sure: when we look at what’s next for Roxo in Asia-Pacific, it feels like innovation has landed in the right place.
