Self-driving Waymo minivans will assist UPS with deliveries

It’s only in the Phoenix area to start, but Waymo vehicles will pick up items from UPS Store locations in Phoenix and bring them to a UPS facility in Tempe, just outside the city.

The pilot starts in the next few months and comes as Waymo is testing its own driverless trucks on long-haul routes through New Mexico and Texas.

Don’t get too excited about human-less cars for this, though. A very human safety driver will be monitoring the cars during the delivery pilot. 

Fill up those Waymos.
