INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Arrive, the inventor of the nation’s first smart mailbox platform, has secured another patent for its high-tech mailbox system designed for autonomous and conventional package delivery.

“This is a big deal because it further positions Arrive as the leader in the space of autonomous delivery,” said Arrive CEO Dan O’Toole. “We’re actually a bit ahead of the market, but that’s great because we’ll be ready when the parcel delivery industry is ready for widespread roll-out of autonomous delivery in a variety of forms.”

Arrive smart mailboxes will soon be installed at numerous sites in Fishers, Ind. Arrive is also showcased at Accentures’ innovation center in Chicago. Stay tuned for a major announcement, centering around a medical campus rollout in Q4 of 2023. O’Toole said he expects to install more Arrive mailboxes next year.

O’Toole first filed for patent protection of his smart mailbox concept in 2014, just edging Amazon by four days and beating the U.S. Postal Service by two weeks and others by less than a month. The latest patent, issued August 29, 2023, covers 39 different elements of the Arrive smart mailbox. that serves as a delivery point for drones, as well as other autonomous and traditional modes.
