Walmart Files Drone Delivery Patents — SupplyChainDive.com

Walmart has filed two patents that pertain to drone delivery. This news has sparked a new round of discussion about retail use of drones in supply chains and e-commerce:

“Walmart filed two patents this week looking at drone delivery, specifically dealing with how to safely and securely drop off packages when they get to their destination. Currently, receiving a delivery from a drone means having the drone drop it on the ground, at least according to Amazon’s FAA application and photos from Project Wing. These patents show Walmart is trying to work out this crucial part of the drone delivery equation.”
