Clevon, an Estonian-based autonomous delivery innovator, has announced T-Mobile as its preferred provider for IoT connectivity and management for its Autonomous Robot Carriers (ARCs) in the United States. This long-term deal will reduce the time it takes to launch commercial delivery services from months to days, making them more efficient, affordable, and environmentally sustainable. The CLEVON 1, a multifunctional all-electric ARC, will use T-Mobile’s IoT solutions to ensure reliable and safe fleet operations for on-demand driverless delivery services.
Callie Field, President of T-Mobile Business Group, expressed excitement to work with Clevon, stating that “The significant work we’re doing together demonstrates a shared passion and responsibility for improving lives, safety and the environment.” Meanwhile, Clevon CEO Sander Sebastian Agur called the partnership with T-Mobile a significant milestone and partnership with a wireless provider that will help them scale their mission to deliver the most reliable, safe and efficient autonomous delivery platform.
The CLEVON 1 can collect orders from various locations and serve up to six destinations in a single trip. By using T-Mobile’s IoT solutions, Clevon can now reduce the time it takes to prepare commercial services, increase accuracy for customers, and leverage remote operations capabilities.
Clevon has been operating in Europe for years and has been the first to offer commercial autonomous delivery services and operate ARCs on European public roads. Today’s announcement reinforces Clevon’s growth trajectory and business momentum in the U.S. with the launch of its North American Center of Excellence in Fort Worth, Texas, and its first North American autonomous delivery with the CLEVON 1 at the AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone (MIZ).
This partnership between Clevon and T-Mobile highlights the future of autonomous deliveries, making it more accessible and convenient for global businesses looking for efficient, affordable, and environmentally sustainable last-mile delivery services.
