Fast delivery is no longer considered a luxury, but rather a necessity. Any client who has ever purchased something online wants to get their product as soon as possible. Plus, if the delivery fee is low or non-existent, that’s even better. Online marketplaces that can provide fast, low-cost delivery will undoubtedly win in the long run.
This is precisely what Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or Drones, will bring to the table. In the near future, if you order something from Amazon, you will receive it by air the same day. In some cases, it may be within the hour. You may even get your next food delivery brought to you instantly by the same means. But this trend doesn’t stop only with e-commerce. Various institutions are also opting in to receive fast deliveries of their products, such as medical supplies.
The environmental impact of drone delivery is also positive because they are much more energy efficient and less polluting than other modes of transportation. They can also reduce the distance traveled by taking direct routes from point A to point B rather than relying on available road infrastructure.
They are the obvious choice for improving delivery efficiency around the world, both in terms of time and costs. Investors worldwide have clearly taken notice of this since investments in drone startups have more than tripled in the past 2 years. The future of delivery has “Drones” written all over it.
In this week’s spotlight article, you will hear all about why drones will be flying all over us in the near future.
