Many countries around the world are questioning the efficiency of post deliveries, so Australia Post is taking a step in the digital direction. Set to start a two week trial of drone deliveries with 50 customers included in the test, the drone deliveries will take place twice a week.
The movement by Australia Post could help to offer a more efficient way for the brand to deliver packages and mail to citizens who live in rural parts of the country. The Australia Post deliveries are being backed by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority to help ensure a safe, effective trial period.
With drone technology shifting from hobby, to viable delivery solution we'll likely see similar trials and tests being performed around the world in the near future.
