Drone delivery: Publicity stunt or game changer in logistics?

27 November 2017

IDTechEx has released a new report "Mobile Robots and Drones in Material Handling and Logistics 2017-2037". Drone delivery is still in its infancy. The technology has long-term future, particularly within the context of the bigger trend to automate as much as of the logistic chain as possible. Its realization will require patient investment in R&D and trials, constant negotiation with regulators, and wholesale re-organisation of distribution points and practices.
This technology will therefore be a loss marker for its main users for years to come. The ultimate grand prize of instant fulfillment will, however, drive this industry forward (News Item IDTechEx, 26 October 2017).
