Just when you thought you had seen a fair share of reforms in our business sector, technology and some of the worlds known moguls solicit to disagree. It may all have started as a small project idea in the mind of a visionary techie, but recent interest in drone technology has revolutionized a lot of sectors in our economy. A statement made by Amazon’s chief executive, Jeff Bezos proposed the inclosing of drone technology in the business sector as far as delivery of goods is concerned.
In December 2016, Amazon made their first commercial delivery to an English customer, courtesy of a drone delivery. Though not so many people or organizations have adopted this system yet, some of the benefits that it brings to our doorstep remain undisputed. Let’s face it, human delivery systems are slow and not always reliable; although in recent years human delivery has sped up tremendously, a drone could be far more efficient in delivering goods to your home (especially considering it will be solely handling your package, whereas by comparison a UPS or Fedex driver has to make several deliveries on the same route).
Drones also don’t have to worry about stop and go traffic, as long as we can figure out proper air space, they can flow appropriately from one destination to another.
So far, as usual, technological progress to make our lives more efficient is impeded by mankind. Mostly, people feel it will inconvenience them and fill up the air space above, a true point indeed, and one that logistics companies run by Amazon will have to figure out how to get around to appease society.
