From my list of assumptions the Return on Investment (ROI) for UPSimplementing electric vehicles and the use of autopilot technology was calculated tobe 15.91%. Based on this result, it can be determined that this would be a successfulyet somewhat risky technology to implement. A positive ROI value shows that UPSwould at the very least breakeven and also has additional income from this project.One major downside of this assumed implementation is that the breakeven pointwill not occur until the 4thquarter. This puts UPS at a high risk because there’s sucha long period between initial implementation and when the company makes itsmoney back. With this long period, it would be difficult to determine if changesshould be made early to fix issues or if the project should go it’s intended course andmake changes closer to the breakeven period. It is also important to consider thelarge scale that this implementation would need to occur on and if a 15.91% ROI isworth the high risk and effort.
