DroneUp, LLC, a leading global provider of drone technology and services, and Walmart have announced the first multi-site commercial drone delivery operations. The three locations, which will be located at Walmart stores in Northwest Arkansas, will operate from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., seven days per week, to deliver items to eligible Walmart customers by air in as little as 30 minutes.
DroneUp’s delivery operation provides Walmart customers a safe, convenient, fast, and sustainable delivery option on thousands of items – even the most fragile – powered by a crew of skilled operators. Enjoying the benefits of drone delivery is as easy as:
- Verify:Customer enters their address to verify eligibility.
- Shop:Customer selects from thousands of items for delivery.
- Secure:Operators pack the order and secure the box to the drone using a patented delivery release mechanism.
- Deliver:The flight engineer manages a controlled and guided delivery, placing the order gently at the customer’s home.
