Ford and Postmates are teaming up to deliver orders with self-driving cars

Announced at CES today, Ford said that it’s partnering with delivery service Postmates to see how self-driving vehicles and on-demand delivery can work together. The two will begin piloting various programs to see how everything goes and how successful the program can be.

While Ford has entered a new partnership with Postmates, it’s not the first time the company is doing delivery tests. The company last year began using an autonomous Ford Fusion to deliver Domino’s orders in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

With this new partnership with Postmates, Ford says that it will not only change consumer experiences but also allow retailers to expand their customer base by reaching new variants of customers.

“The way commerce is moving around in cities is dramatically changing, and emerging technology will undoubtedly have an impact on the future of on-demand delivery,” Ford said in a post on Medium. “With the knowledge we’ll gain from our partnership with Postmates, we anticipate we’ll be able to better deploy self-driving technology in a way that can help people get what they need faster, while also supporting local businesses that are a big part of communities around the world.”
