Starship’s on-demand package delivery requires you to first install the app to receive a delivery address to go in the place of your home address, or wherever else you usually get packages delivered. That Starship-provided delivery address is where the company’s local facility is located. Once your package arrives there, the app will notify you and enable you to request a Starship bot to deliver it to you, wherever you are. Through the app, you can also track where your package is at all times.
Starship delivers to home within a two-mile radius but has plans to expand its service area to make farther deliveries. The company says the battery is not a limitation, but that it merely wants wait time to be as short as possible.
By the end of the year, Starship aims for the service to be available to residents in the San Francisco Bay Area.
