Semi-Finalist Evaluation

Judges'' comments

The concept is interesting but lacking details on the actual mechanism for delivery. Without the details, one can only infer it is a terrestrial-based drone system. A drone delivery system is obviously of interest with Amazon’s air-based system being the most noteworthy of late. The expectations for this to affect climate should be fairly modest. The vast majority of freight ton-miles traveled is not consumed in the end-use shopping and pickup. Some people actually choose to drive to a mall or shopping area instead of ordering online. The amount of vehicle miles traveled (VMT) that would be displaced by the concept would be small compared to overall VMT and the overall GHG impact minimal.
