UPS’ drone subsidiary and the CVS pharmacy chain say they’ll start delivering prescription medicines to the nation’s largest retirement community next month, using Matternet’s M2 drone delivery system.
Physical distancing and restrictions on retail business, enacted in response to the pandemic, are bringing more attention to the potential for drone deliveries.
“This drone delivery service provides an innovative method to reach some of our customers,” Roberts said.
Amazon and Walmart are expected to play a big part in future drone deliveries, although they’re not currently involved in any of the public pilot projects approved by the FAA.
Although the Seattle-based retail giant has continued testing its drones in a variety of locations around the globe, it hasn’t yet announced a publicly available drone delivery service in the U.S.
