Drones used to deliver parcels to remote Alpine villages

Posted by in category: drones

France’s postal service has begun using drones to make parcel deliveries to a remote Alpine village.

La Poste’s subsidiary, DPD, says flying packages by remote control is more reliable, quicker and safer than driving a van up narrow mountain roads in winter when they are often icy or blocked by snow.

The delivery by drone, which flies at around 30km/h, takes eight minutes for a round trip, compared with 30 minutes for a vehicle.
