Rollo Launches Its First Electric Vehicle Delivery Pilot in Las Vegas
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. 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. Rollo is a one-stop shipping solution founded in 2016. With a cost-saving, ink-free wireless label printer, free shipping app and now delivery service, the company is disrupting the multi-billion dollar small parcel industry making shipping easier for small- to medium-sized businesses. 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.
