  • UPS drone makes first home prescription deliveries for CVS

Flight Forward's maiden delivery flight on Friday in Cary, North Carolina, beat rivals in one phase of the race for the nascent market. Indeed, it's unique circumstances like these that make drone delivery all the more appealing.

UPS Flight Forward, a subsidiary of the delivery company known for its boxy brown trucks, received an airline certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration in September, which will allow it to operate a commercial fleet of drones.

Package carrier UPS and pharmacy company CVS on November 5 said they completed the first money-making deliveries of medical prescriptions to customers by drone.

Other similar system have been deployed successfully to deliver blood in Rwanda as well as in Switzerland where a Matternet drone has already taken more than 3,000 flights.

UPS Flight Forward partnered with CVS Pharmacy to carry out the pioneering deliveries. It also launched 'UPS Flight Forward, ' a dedicated division focused on autonomous drone delivery.

Although drones have previously been used to fly prescriptions and other medical items around hospital campuses, or between medical facilities, this marks the first time in the USA items have been delivered directly to a paying customer. CVS paid UPS for the delivery services, he said.

The shipments, roughly the size of small shoeboxes, have been lowered from drones floating at an altitude of about 20 feet. A month later, CVS announced that it had become the first retail health care company to work with UPS to explore the use of drones for deliveries.

The deliveries mark another milestone in a recently announced collaboration between UPS and CVS to develop a variety of drone delivery use cases, including business-to-consumer operating models. "We're delighted to build new services that will shatter preconceived notions of how, when and where goods can be delivered".

In March, UPS and Matternet began drone operations across the WakeMed medical campus in Raleigh, North Carolina.

While private industry, particularly e-commerce companies like Amazon, have been eager to deploy drone technology for last-mile delivery, rules and regulations have kept the pace of commercial adoption and usage to a minimum.
