UPS just beat out Amazon, FedEx, and Uber to make America’s first revenue-generating drone delivery

  • UPS, in partnership with the drone technology company Matternet, on Tuesday began its daily drone delivery of medical supplies in WakeMed’s campus in Raleigh, North Carolina.
  • The drone delivery cut the transport time of crucial medical samples from about half an hour to just over three minutes.
  • It was the first revenue-generating drone delivery and is the first commercial application of the much-hyped and highly regulated technology.
  • UPS is part of a public-private US Department of Transportation drone-testing program started last spring. Amazon, which has made highly publicized moves into drone testing, was not included in the program.
