A variety of compact solutions for last-mile deliveries are being invented to replace large vehicles that only add congestion to busy urban settings. While some of these vehicles take the form of autonomous robots and cars, Bond is on a mission to replace traditional package delivery services with couriers and electric trikes.
To support hyperlocal deliveries, Bond is opening small warehouse spaces, or "nano distribution centers," in basements and storefronts so that urban deliveries can not only happen faster but the whole process is lower in emissions. In the event that a person isn't able to receive their package during a scheduled time, the parcel is simply sent back to the storefront or it can be scheduled for pickup.
Bond works with brands that make perishable goods, including fresh fish and flowers, as well as a variety of other consumer goods.
