Look up in the sky, it’s a plane, it’s a bird, no it’s a drone drug delivery system! Legal delivery system that is! UPS and CVS have partnered to start drone residential prescription drug delivery. We are not too far off from the George Jetson’s era! the CVS pharmacist fills the prescription and hands it off to a UPS Flight Forward drone pilot who in turn loads the drone which flies autonomously to its delivery destination, and Cary North Carolina. The FAA’s approval of drug prescription delivery is a step in the right direction for the U.S. UAV/Drone industry.
Additionally, UPS has been working with Mattternet and WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh, doing commercial deliveries of medical samples in a B2B setting.We are all excited to see what the next delivery milestone will be reached! Stay Tuned! Learn more about drone delivery!
