Logistics Innovation through Adoption of Drones will Lead to Efficient Supply Chain in Urban, Suburban, and Rural Areas
Logistics service providers are exploring new delivery methods to increase their operational efficiency due to the integration of E-commerce and logistics services. Drone technology provides the best option for logistics service providers to tackle supply chain problems, which usually involve last-mile connectivity and labor issues.

Lack of regulatory development in the United States and Europe has forced/pushed future delivery drone operators to search for alternative locations to test the drones for delivery uses.

Recent developments surrounding drone technology have generated positive signs that the technology has the potential to be adapted into logistics delivery services between 2017 and 2020.
