Rollo has launched its inaugural EV Fleet in Las Vegas, a carbon-friendly solution to last-mile logistics offering pickups for all carriers and a $5 flat-rate fee for Vegas-to-Vegas deliveries.
What you need to know: Rollo will be offering free pick-up for legacy carriers, GPS tracking, and same-day delivery on packages within Las Vegas — the company’s first test market — with plans for expansion into other metropolitan cities.
Shipping with a legacy carrier comes with its problems: poor customer service, no driver communication, complex processes for the shipper, requirements to add specific weight and dimensions of each package, unexpected fees, unreliable delivery, and many times, no proof of delivery, to name a few.
Rollo is disrupting the shipping industry by creating a seamless experience for customers.
Why it matters: With ecommerce growing by 23% per year, the increase in last-mile delivery vehicles is causing an increase in greenhouse gas emissions.
Nearly 300 billion parcels are expected to be delivered annually by 2026, making it more urgent than ever to make last-mile delivery more economically and environmentally sustainable.
What they’re saying: “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 minimize our carbon footprint as a powerful e-commerce ally for businesses looking to ship fast and easily.”
How it works: Anyone with the Rollo app can take advantage of these services. No need to have a Rollo printer or even shipping materials.
The company will be using an entirely electric vehicle fleet as part of its mission to make that last mile a smooth ride without the headaches of driving packages to a shipping office and waiting in long lines.
