From food to parcel deliveries, 2020 has accelerated the shift from brick and mortar stores to digital retail and online shopping. Last mile, the final step of the delivery process, is arguably more important than ever. Bringing orders right up the customer’s doorstep is crucial for many retailers to compete and satisfy demand. Additionally, during the pandemic new problems emerged, such as how to re-route a delivery to comply with local lockdowns and the challenge of keeping drivers and customers safe while still delivering on time. Not to forget that an increase in e-commerce delivery would result in higher emissions and traffic congestion.

HERE invites developers to utilize location data to help businesses and organizations optimize online delivery experiences, including but not limited to eco-friendly logistics, more efficient routes for drivers, curbside pickup solutions, real-time ETAs. Start building solutions with HERE APIs and SDKs from Routing and Transit as well as Geofencing and Traffic to Isoline Routing, and more. The hackathon will provide a platform for developers to ideate, experiment, and collaborate.
