Delivery drone, an innovative project

In 2014, we launched a research project to explore innovative and reliable technical solutions to deliver parcels using drones in the near future.

We partnered Atechsys, a start-up specialised in autonomous systems, to develop a new prototype that meet our specific needs.

Today, after more than 600 test flights, we achieved a new milestone: operating a regular commercial route of 15 km. 

"As Europe's leading parcel delivery player, we're pushing the envelope in our sector to establish new service standards. We are now proud of the technical innovations that make our drone one of the safest and most advanced in the sector. We believe that this technology will find its place in future parcel delivery operations."
