Flirtey and 7-Eleven complete first month of “routine commercial drone deliveries”

Flirtey and 7-Eleven have announced that they have completed their first month of “routine commercial drone deliveries”. In a statement sent to Post&Parcel yesterday (20 December), Flirtey said that it had made “77 autonomous drone deliveries to customer homes in the United States”.

The statement continued: “The deliveries are the result of Flirtey and 7-Eleven’s commercial collaboration, which kicked off in July with the world’s first autonomous drone delivery to a customer’s residence.Flirtey conducted regular weekend deliveries during November from a 7-Eleven store to a dozen select customers who were able to use a custom app to place their unique order.

“Along with listing all items available for delivery, the interactive app also notified customers when their drone was loaded, when it departed from the store and when it was arriving at their doorstep.”

On average, according to Flirtey, customers receive their packages by Flirtey less than 10 minutes from the point of order.
