Finnish Postal Service Tests Delivery Drones

The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing

24 September 2015. The Finnish postal service Posti Group has tested parcel delivery by drone. Over 4 days, it transported parcels weighing up to 3kg, flying distances up to 5 miles. There were some issues, such as the first test flight ending up landing some distance away from the intended landing site due to winds. Posti Group estimates it will take a couple more years until the technology is perfected. It hopes that the use of drones for parcel delivery will eventually improve delivery times for ecommerce purchases.
