Skydrop is the premier independent drone delivery service, simplifying the delivery of such items as food, medicine, retail and e-commerce. Since 2015, when the company completed its first FAA-approved delivery, Skydrop has been revolutionizing the delivery sector, making it quicker and more efficient to deliver and receive a parcel than ever before. Their mission is to save lives and improve lifestyles by making delivery instant for everyone.
This US based drone delivery company is designed to safely get packages to customers with the delivery goal of less than 10 minutes. The aircrafts are designed to operate in 95% of wind and weather conditions, making it highly a reliable delivery system. As well as decreasing the delivery time, Skydrop drones are replacing lorries and vans from the roads, modes of transport that contribute significantly to the destruction of the environment. Therefore, with the drones greatly reducing CO2 emissions from our atmosphere, this is the environmentally friendly solution that the delivery sector has been seriously lacking.
