Walmart expands drone deliveries

By Retail Technology | Wednesday January 4 2023 | UPDATED 23.02.23

Retail giant Walmart has expanded its DroneUp delivery network to 34 sites

The move provides the potential to reach 4 million U.S. households across six states – Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

It will give them the ability to deliver over 1 million packages by drone in a year.

Participating stores will house a DroneUp delivery hub inclusive of a team of certified pilots, operating within FAA guidelines, that safely manage flight operations for deliveries. Once a customer places an order, the item is fulfilled from the store, packaged, loaded into the drone and delivered right to their yard using a cable that gently lowers the package.
