Will we receive our packages by drone in the coming years? If so, what will it look like?
In Zurich, Mercedes-Benz Vans, the drone logistics systems developer Matternet and the swiss e-commerce startup siroop will pilot a drone delivery concept for dense urban environments, which enables new services through the intelligent combination of drone and van and offers added value to online buyers and retailers. In this unique joint pilot project, which starts on 25th September with first trials, the three partners will test the new delivery system under real life conditions, which specific processes are necessary and how the online customers react to this new service.
On Thursday, September 28, 2017 starting at approx. 12.30 p.m. CEST / 10.30 a.m. GMT the "Pilot project for supplying goods by drone" with Stefan Maurer, Head of Future Transportation at Mercedes-Benz Vans, Andreas Raptopoulos, co-founder and CEO of Matternet and Peter Rohn, COO of siroop will take place in Zurich.
