This Drone Could Soon Land On Your Doorstep

September 9, 2015

Drones have been quite the buzzword in the e-commerce industry — and an especially hot topic among online retailers. These little flying robots could singlehandedly (err, multi-wing-edly?) revolutionize a retailer’s supply chain management — cutting down on the money and time spent on product inventory, transportation and distribution.

And it’s only a matter of time before we see their effects in action.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) doesn’t plan to finalize regulation of commercial drone use until sometime next year, but Google’s Project Wing and Amazon Prime Air are two drone-delivery programs already in the works.

Parrot AR 2.0 Power EditionFind drones fascinating? We do too. Which is why we’ve decided to give away one of the top drones on the market — a Parrot AR 2.0 Power Edition Quadcopter.*

Now, this drone won’t deliver customers’ orders or sort through your inventory warehouse, but the Parrot AR 2.0 Power Edition can capture breathtaking views and live-stream HD video. Nothing like becoming an amateur photographer and aviator as you prepare for the drone revolution to hit e-commerce full-throttle.
