Clevon Center of Excellence opens headquarters

Clevon’–s expansion into the North American market comes as the pressure from businesses to offer on-demand, same-day or next-day delivery of goods and services continues to skyrocket.

Clevon, an autonomous delivery vehicle company, has expanded operations to North America with the opening of its Center of Excellence and U.S. headquarters in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex at the AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone.

As part of the celebration, the company hosted the president of the Republic of Estonia Alar Karis; Brandom Gengelbach, president and CEO of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce; and Ross Perot Jr., chairman of Hillwood and The Perot Group, at the company’s opening commemoration.

Clevon said that it is expanding into the North American market as the pressure from businesses to offer on-demand, same-day or next-day delivery of goods and services continues to skyrocket. To meet this demand, Clevon has brought its autonomous delivery vehicles to North America. Its unmanned cars will drive on public roads and enable the transportation of goods to be more energy efficient, cost-effective and scalable, the company said.

The global autonomous last-mile delivery market is expected to grow almost five times to $57 billion in the next six years. This growth presents a significant challenge for global e-commerce businesses and traditional brick-and-mortar retailers. These businesses will need to differentiate and innovate their last-mile delivery solutions to compete in a marketplace where on-demand delivery options dominate, the company said.   

“By expanding into North America, Clevon is furthering its mission to develop vehicles that save energy, are environmentally friendly and contribute towards a climate-neutral economy. We do this by supporting smart and sustainable communities through positively impacting our clients’ carbon emission reduction targets,” said Sander Sebastian Agur, CEO of Clevon. “We are thrilled to call the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex our new home in the United States and very much appreciate the warm welcome and support of the local business communities and government leaders. We look forward to helping the local economy grow and thrive through job creation, technology innovation and leadership.” 

Mattie Parker, mayor of Fort Worth, Texas, said, “We are pioneering the future of mobility right here in Fort Worth, especially with the AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone serving as a hub for exciting innovation. I am thrilled to welcome Clevon to our city and our business community, and I look forward to seeing how their expansion to Fort Worth supports their continued growth in the autonomous delivery vehicle market.”
