Even though there are many differences between Amazon and Wing drones, there is one key denominator that makes the Wing products more superior. Wing, a sister company of Google. is one of the few companies that conducts real-time drone deliveries in the US.
A Huge Feat for Wing Drones
Today, Wing hit a new milestone as they completed 100,000 drone deliveries. More than 50% of these deliveries happened in the last eight months. This accomplishment is just one of many reasons why Wing Drones have a huge preference in the drone industry. Until August 2021, Wing completed more drone deliveries this year than they did for the entirety of 2020.
If we talk about the deliveries in Logan, you can easily do that by logging into their app and placing an order. The Wing will send the item to any of the 19 suburbs that they are associated with.
“What distinguishes the Logan operation from the various tests and trials going on around the world, beyond its order volume, is that it is a live, automated, on-demand service,” Wing statement
What does it mean for the customers?
The public welcomes the success of Wing drones with open arms. Even though publicity is a necessity, the company should ensure that they don’t overdo it to indicate the infrastructure in place. This overdoing will make drone deliveries scalable. We can expect further developments regarding this in the future. Recently, we saw the delivery of Chipotle burritos at Virginia Tech.
How do the drones work?
“In many ways, Logan represents the drone delivery capital of the world, with residents in 19 suburbs able to order goods on-demand, via drone. During one week in early August in Logan, we made nearly 4,500 deliveries — a record for us — and we continue to average thousands of deliveries each week.” Wing statement
