UPS on Track to Use Delivery Drones This Year That Launch from Roof of Electric Trucks

The technology company Workhorse has unveiled a delivery drone that launches from the roof of electric trucks.  UPS has begun testing the drones in Florida.  Workhorse CEO Steve Burns discusses the benefits of the drones and when consumers might see those drones dropping off deliveries at their front doors.

According to Burns, Workhorse and UPS have focused the testing on rural areas.

“FAA likes rural because not many people to fly under, or over, and for UPS, that’s the most expensive delivery, it’s the furthest to go,” Burns told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.

As the delivery drones are tested and improved, Burns predicts that they will expand beyond rural areas.
