UPS has announced their plan to develop a drone delivery service for prescription drugs!
On Monday, UPS announced plans to work with CVS Health to develop a prescription drug delivery service using UPS drones. UPS Flight Forward and Matternet are the first drone delivery services to receive full certification from the Federal Aviation Administration to operate a drone airline.
This latest collaboration will help test the latest innovations in the last mile of a residential package delivery. UPS isn’t the only company testing out the drone delivery service as FedEx has also made express deliveries via drones in Christianburg, Virginia. Amazon has also begun testing commercial drone deliveries as major shippers ramp up their capabilities to match the fast growing e-commerce market.
