Are drones really the future of delivery?

July 1, 2019

In today’s on-demand economy, consumers have come to expect rapid delivery times. Drone technology represents one way e-commerce businesses can accelerate delivery times. Unlike delivery trucks, drones can travel “as the crow flies” – skipping over traffic congestion and complicated navigation paths. According to The Walker Sands Future of Retail 2016 Study, 79% of US consumers said they would be “very likely” or “somewhat likely” to request drone delivery if their package could be delivered within an hour. What’s more, faster fulfilment times brought about by drones could result in lower shipping costs for the customers, meaning more sales and higher revenues for businesses.
