Croatian Post successfully completes first drone delivery

LinkedIn +

Working together with drone services provider AIR-RMLD, Croatian Post has successfully completed its first drone delivery as part of a pilot project.

A drone flew autonomously from the Zadar port of Gaženica to Preko on the island of Ugljan at a speed of 35km/h, for about 12 minutes.

The drone has since successfully delivered parcels from Gaženica to Preko over a dozen times, also flying during heavy winds. The drone can carry loads of up to 200g, while flying completely autonomously on a pre-programmed route.

The pilot project will initially demonstrate the possibilities of using a drone in the delivery of letters and parcels between post offices and indicate the needs of Croatian Post for this type of technology.

To watch the drone in action, watch this video (subtitles in Croatian).
