Autonomous FedEx delivery bots will soon be roaming Memphis streets. Yesterday, FedEx debuted its FedEx SameDay Bot on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and today the company is executing a media blitz to spread the word on this new technology aimed at solving the challenges that come with last mile delivery. The Memphis Business Journal first reported in November 2018 that FedEx had requested a trademark for “FedEx SameDay Bot” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), to be used for “robots for documents and package delivery.” Brie Carere, the newly appointed executive vice president and chief marketing and communications officer for FedEx Corp. told the MBJ that FedEx worked in collaboration for more than a year with DEKA Development & Research Corp. — whose founder has developed technologies such as the iBOT and Segway. With this new technology, retailers will be able to accept orders from nearby customers — and then the FedEx SameDay Bot will be deployed to make the delivery, as the name indicates, the same day.
Papa John's has a lot on its plate as it tries to stage a comeback after a poor 2018. Here's one way it's looking to improve its fortunes in 2019.

The companies are finalizing city approvals, with testing expected to begin in the summer. The announcement comes weeks after Amazon.com Inc. announced that it was testing autonomous delivery devices. Yum shares have rallied 16.4% over the last year, FedEx stock has shed 27% over the period, and the S&P 500 index is up 1.8% for the past 12 months.
