Ottonomy is focused on innovating and paving the way for efficient and sustainable delivery logistics. With its global pilots throughout 2022, Ottonomy successfully demonstrated autonomous deliveries across a range of terrain and in varying inclement weather conditions, in order to provide sustainable solutions for automating deliveries for multiple use cases at scale.
Ritukar Vijay, CEO and co-founder of Ottonomy, says: “During the validation processes we ran pilots with airports, retailers and postal services which gave us the deep insights we needed on the most effective use cases and scalability.
“With our strategic partnerships, we are in the prime position to fill the gap that companies like Amazon and Fedex were not able to. As demand and the use cases for autonomous unassisted delivery continue to grow, we are positioned to provide robots-as-a-service for restaurants, retailers and beyond.”
The global autonomous delivery market has had an excellent year with technological advancements shaping the autonomous last-mile delivery market.
Launching its robot-as-a-service business model, Ottonomy was able to catalyze rapid adoption of autonomous delivery solutions proving that fully autonomous delivery is an efficient, scalable, and sustainable solution.

In addition, Ottonomy robots are used by Posten Norge in Oslo, Norway as well as Goggo in Madrid, Spain for automating first-mile delivery and last-mile deliveries.
