The most expensive part of distribution logistics is the distribution of packages. Every day, a large number of geographically dispersed customers receive their deliveries using several vehicles. Drones are now a reliable substitute for traditional delivery methods. So it’s time to say goodbye to Talabat, Zomato and others as you can order your food or anything in general. A drone is there to rescue a delivery in Abu Dhabi.
Who will launch drone delivery in Abu Dhabi?

Emirates Post Group, the official postal service of the United Arab Emirates, Maqta Gateway, the digital division of AD Ports Group, and SkyGo are all air logistics companies.
The aforementioned trio plans to test air transport drones. The goal is to provide an environment and user-friendly service that transports essential items quickly. The inventory can include medical supplies, fresh meals, and important documents while providing real-time tracking.
The program starts with short-distance trips before moving on to long-distance tests. This gives a basic idea of how to measure demand and understand the wider benefit.

When will this project start for users?
The details of the pilot program will be announced by the end of 2022. The companies plan to release a licensed commercial service in the next year.
SkyGo offers drone solutions and Margo Hub (a digital marketplace) facilitates online transactions between customers and Emirates Post. A more environmentally friendly alternative to delivery trucks that release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, a drone delivery service could be revolutionary for the UAE. However, the use of drone delivery services can jeopardize the delivery work.
So get ready for your most important delivery items to really fly!
