UPS Launches Drone Delivery Subsidiary UPS Flight Forward, Inc.

Recommended Posts

UPS recently launched a company focused on drone deliveries called UPS Flight Forward, Inc., saying that they are “laying the foundation” for a sustainable drone delivery business.

It may be helpful to note, in the interest of full information regarding this subject, that Matternet has flown over 3000 such flights over Bern and Zurich Switzerland in a partnership with Swiss Post. They had an accident in January and then another recently. They have been slowed down due to these accidents but, make no mistake, this is happening.
