Dallas joins growing list of US cities where Walmart offers drone deliveries

Walmart has followed an announcement in May 2022 with the start of drone deliveries services in Dallas, according to a report by Dallas News.

“Drones are stationed at 11 stores in Dallas, Garland, Mesquite, Murphy, Plano, Richardson, Rowlett and The Colony,” says the newspaper.

Walmart invested in drone operating company DroneUp ahead of starting drone services in mid-June 2022, initially in Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Utah and Virginia.

How it works:

  • Place orders from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. through DroneUp at droneupdelivery.com
  • More than 10,000 Walmart items are available, including a dozen eggs
  • There’s no minimum dollar amount per order, but there is a charge of USD3.99 per delivery
  • You have to have a yard, driveway or walkway where the drone can place the package
  • You have to live within a mile of a delivery store.

The region already benefits from drone deliveries, started earlier this year in Fricso and Little Elm by Walgreens and Wing, a drone delivery company owned by Google parent, Alphabet. Wing has opened a remote operations centre in Coppell to support expansion in North Texas.
