Japan Post to deliver mail by drone by 2023

 Japan Post is joining forces with Autonomous Control Systems Laboratory (ACSL), a domestic drone manufacturer, to start delivering mail by air.

Japan Post Group announced its plans to collaborate with ACSL to create an air delivery system that would prove useful in mountainous areas and in remote islands.

ACSL is a Tokyo-based drone manufacturing company that develops and implements industrial drones into society.

Japan’s aging population has made it difficult for Japan Post to hire workers and they hope that the use of drones will help alleviate this problem.

The project team is still working out the air traffic controls that will enable drones to fly uninterrupted, and they have plans to be fully functional by 2023.

Japan Post President Kazuhide Kinugawa stated, “We are at the forefront of logistics innovation, combining Japan Post’s delivery prowess with the technology and know-how of the largest domestic industrial drone manufacturer.”
