Amazon customers in Lockeford, California, will be among the first to receive Prime Air drone deliveries in the U.S.
The promise of drone delivery has often felt like science fiction. We’ve been working for almost a decade to make it a reality.
The challenge: How do you get items to customers quickly, cost-effectively, and—most importantly—safely, in less than an hour? And how do you do it in a way that can scale? It’s relatively easy to use existing technology to fly a light payload a short distance that’s within your line of sight, but it’s a very different challenge to build a network that can deliver to customers across large communities.Amazon
