Drone-To-Door? American Corporate Giants Reveal Revolutionary Plan

American corporate giants have announced a new partnership with a Virginia-based startup company known as DroneUp.

Corporate entities such as Wal-Mart, 7-11, and Chick-fil-A are looking to revolutionize their customer service and logistics by using DroneUp’s new proprietary technology.

DroneUp utilizes a network of drones and temperature-controlled lockers to fill in the gaps posed by current logistics networks.

The DroneUp temperature lockers are about the size of a small storage pod—the kind that is commonly seen on residential properties being renovated or built.

Sources explain that these small lockers will allow small businesses and corporate giants alike to take advantage of DroneUp’s infrastructure.

Would you use or trust drone deliveries, or do you believe this is simply a one-way street to accidents and consumer hazards? Read on and feel free to chime in, in the comments section below:

The U.S. Sun claimed:

When making deliveries, the drones automatically know where to go in the sky, and have the power to avoid any aircraft along the way.

They travel 60 miles per hour within a 30-mile range and pick up packages using a claw-like grabber that can carry up to 10 pounds safely.

Sources provided numerous images of the DroneUp unmanned aircraft and infrastructure that will be utilized by corporate giants such as Wal-Mart, 7-11, Chick-fil-A, and others.

Axios pointed out several critical flaws in current drone delivery systems:

While the delivery itself takes only a few minutes, the process needs streamlining on the back end — which is why Walmart tells people to expect 30 minutes.

Drone delivery service is not yet integrated into Walmart’s e-commerce site, so users need to switch to the drone company’s site to place their order.
