7 Eleven starts delivering packages via drone

7-Eleven delivers 77 packages via drone in first month.

Instant drone delivery isn’t the future, it’s happening now. Flirtey and 7-Eleven complete deliveries of 77 packages, in first month of routine commercial drone deliveries.

Once an order was placed, 7-Eleven merchandise, with items like a hot and cold food and over-the-counter medicines, were loaded into a custom Flirtey drone delivery container and uses precision GPS to customer’s house. Once arrived, the drone hovered and lowered the package.

Flirtey CEO Matthew Sweeny, said:

“Flirtey is the world’s leader in the drone delivery industry and we have now successfully completed the first month of routine commercial drone deliveries to customer homes in partnership with 7-Eleven. While other companies in this space are shipping jobs overseas, Flirtey’s goal is to make delivery instant, and in the process create jobs at home for hardworking Americans and veterans. This is a giant leap towards a future where everyone can experience the convenience of Flirtey’s instant store-to-door drone delivery.”
