Walmart teams with drone service player for health, wellness item delivery

Sept. 15, 2020

Walmart is partnering with drone delivery service Zipline to provide on-demand health and wellness product deliveries.

The plan, according to a CNBC report, is to then expand and offer all general merchandise via drone delivery.

It’s the second drone announcement for Walmart in the past two weeks. The first is a pilot project with Flytrex for grocery and house products.

The move comes on the heels of Amazon getting federal agency approval to test delivery drones and Walmart’s move to launch an Amazon Prime membership competitor called Walmart+.

“We’ll never stop looking into and learning about what the next best technology is and how we can use it to better serve our customers now and into the future,” Tom Ward, Walmart senior vice president of customer product, said in a press statement.
