UPS Piloting Drone Delivery Service

Brown delivers..by air!

Traffic, road work and accidents all complicate the UPS delivery schedule, but none of these land-based impediments should deter a drone, right?

UPS announced today that it has successfully delivered a package in Florida using an autonomous drone that launched from one of its delivery trucks. The test is the first step in what the company hopes could one day become a more routine use of drones for package delivery.

UPS is betting the driver-drone pairing will double their efficiency. The driver can complete one delivery and dispatch the drone to another, later rendezvousing at some point along the return route.

yeah, but how will the drone look in brown shorts?
