Walmart’s drones now deliver in seven Member States

Walmart’s drone delivery program is expanding nicely. According to the company, shoppers in seven US states – Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, North Carolina, Texas, Utah and Virginia – now have the option. The option is available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. for $4. For this money, a customer-ordered package weighing up to 10 pounds (4.5 kg) will arrive at the address within a half hour. This delivery limit, by the way, covers the vast majority of items typically purchased for small purchases.
