Wing, an Alphabet company, has announced it will launch a drone delivery service in Finland in spring of 2019, the first Wing operation in Europe.
According to the company: “We have spent the last six years developing a fleet of small aircraft and an automated navigation system that can deliver food, medicine and other items just minutes after they are requested. Drone delivery is not only safer, faster and more environmentally friendly than ground delivery, it can also radically improve our quality of life. Wing has spent the past 18 months trialling the customer experience of drone delivery with thousands of deliveries in south-eastern Australia, partnering with local businesses to deliver a range of food and drinks, medicine and household items….we’re looking forward to working with the community and local businesses to find the best way to implement our services in the Helsinki area. Based on what we know about the winter weather in Finland, we’re pretty confident that if our drones can deliver here, they can deliver anywhere!”
