Drones, a subsidiary of the American alphabet, are set to deliver their hundreds of thousands of collections. The so-called wing of the company, currently only offers in Australia. Drone delivery is currently being tested in the United States and Finland, and the company plans to expand in those countries.
Wing, like its Google Alphabet subsidiary, is not yet charged for delivering packages. According to the company, 100,000 distributions are actually products paid for by customers. Tests are not included. From the bustling center, near the city of Brisbane on the east coast of Australia, 4,500 packages were delivered a week in August.
According to Wing, delivering parcels with drones will be more efficient in the future than delivering with vans. “We are very confident about our ability to provide this service over time at a lower cost than providing land,” a spokesman said.
Flying robots can take years to replace parcel delivery. Drones can currently carry a set of up to 1.5 kg over a distance of about ten kilometers.
The Wing declined to say how many packages were delivered to the United States. The company has a test location in the state of Virginia. Wing has previously received approval from the FAA of the U.S. Aviation Authority. The United States is still working on restrictions on drones.
