swiss post box.jpg, deargdoom57 Auguest 5, 2010I reported earlier about the Swiss postal service working with Matternet to test the viability of using drones to deliver postal mail. Below is the summary from the latest press release on the subject, direct from the Swiss Post.

Swiss Post, Swiss WorldCargo and Matternet are jointly testing the commercial use of logistics drones. The three companies are investigating specific uses of drone technology and examining the cost-effectiveness of these business ideas. They will be carrying out drone tests in July 2015 for this purpose. The widespread use of drones is not expected within the next five years. The focus is primarily on their use in exceptional cases or the transport of special items.
