Drone delivery starts in another US city

Pea Ridge, Arkansas, will be home to the first commercial drone home delivery service in the United States, launched by Zipline. Although customers will be able to choose from thousands of products, they will be limited mainly to health and wellness products such as over-the-counter allergy medicines, bandages and ibuprofen tablets. The service will only be available within a 50-mile radius.

German postal services do not deliver by drone for now

Drone DJ and Freight Waves also reported the news, which was confirmed by a DHL spokesperson. The first DHL parcel drone was test flown in 2013, when it flew over the Rhine, travelled one kilometre and made a successful landing. The drone was controlled from the ground and its route was marked so that the controller could follow it all the way.
