‘A first in France’: Carrefour trials autonomous delivery!


France supermarket retailer Carrefour is partnering with last-mile delivery start-up Goggo Network to trial a Mobile Drive service south of Paris.

Goggo Network was founded in 2018 with the aim of solving the ‘transportation challenges of today by leading the ‘driverless revolution. The company offers autonomous, electric, and shared mobility solutions through the creation of Autonomous Mobility Network.

In what Carrefour has described as ‘a first in France’, the retailer has tied-up with Goggo Network to trial autonomous delivery of Carrefour Drive orders for residents on the Plateau de Saclay – otherwise called Silicon Valley Européen – located 20km south of Paris. This will serve students at the Paris Institute Polytechnique, and others located a long way from retail areas.

According to Carrefour, the trial will make it possible to extend current delivery rounds. Not only will the remaining five miles be brought ‘within easier reach’, but the times and costs of transports rounds will be ‘optimised’.
