How Amazon Drone Delivery Will Work

It’s well over a decade since Amazon launched its Prime delivery service; in fact it was 2007 when the company first introduced us to unlimited next-day shipping on what was at the time almost a million products. But in 13 years, we have seen little change. That is, until recently.

Many areas now offer same-day delivery, but behind closed doors Amazon had been working on an ambitious plan to realise almost instant delivery. The goal? Just 30 minutes, from the click of the ‘order now’ button to the tangible products, in our hands.

Every delivery company can agree that the final mile or so of a product’s journey is the most expensive. As it leaves a shipping container, and steps away from the lorry’s vessel, it enters the smallest vehicle yet – vans, and sometimes cars. Rather than carrying millions of products, a driver can now only carry a few dozen. Employing thousands of drivers comes at incredible cost to shipping companies.

    That would mean – no more job for delivery drivers. If you think about it.

    Why its almost an idea just created to kick hobbyists out of the sky.

    a drone will use 20 times the energy of a mobile amazon locker and sound like a giant mutated bee every time someone in your neighborhood is getting a delivery.

    In a day and age where we might finally get quiet road vehicles we are going to encourage the mass use of drones to be zipping about delivering packages?

    where do i buy this product?

  4. Hot_HeadGaming on March 8, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    I have gotten a Packet of Tim Tams and a bottle of Water from Wing, the drones are very loud, however it narrowly missed the clothes line.

  5. Anand Balan on March 8, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    So it will wipe of delivery boy jobs also, already Amazon made many stores to close down

  6. Siamect on March 8, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    So due to FAA’s incompetence this project was delayed 6 years!!! Incredible!

  7. Paul Belissont on March 8, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Cities will be unstainable with constant Mosquito Drone Noise all day long lol

  8. E Man on March 8, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    3:41 fake. You can see its a car battery, not a drone

  9. Mishika Chawla on March 8, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Beautiful idea especially for contactless delivery serving the need of the hour. Especially, for crime prone areas; it comes out as a great solution to unsafe roads of different countries. Also, adding to the market share of the company.

    Why dont use your phone as the mat?

  13. Drinor Halili on March 8, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    What will happen when it will rain to your package

  14. Dj👤CRANIUM👤DRUM N BASS UK🧟‍♂️ on March 8, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Drug smugglers are licking there lips with this tech . There is a drone that can fly 8 hours at 1000s of feet and do 10000s klm 🥶 only 150k for this drone /plane.

  15. ABUBAKAR ABDINOR on March 8, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    What if i just steal the drone its self

  16. Eric Romary on March 8, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Noise pollution

  17. packleader87 on March 8, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Will it deliver bicycles?

  18. mido diaky on March 8, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Those drones will definitely be bully
    But they couldn’t express their feelings

  19. Crystal ponce on March 9, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Leaving humans jobless one robot at a time.

  20. Cooper G Farrant on March 9, 2021 at 12:07 am

    It won’t work. That’s the bottom line

  21. Sprinkle Cöokie on March 9, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Thats relaxing
    Edit: btw if that thing fall thay will pay 😂

  22. Ata Berk Bozkurt on March 9, 2021 at 12:10 am

    So you’re telling me that as of now airliners are more likely to have a drone strike rather than a bird strike huh.

  23. Aldo Arroyo on March 9, 2021 at 12:12 am

    No the number 1 issue is someone stealing a drone. Attach every drone with nuclear weapons for safety >;)

  24. Harsh Ram on March 9, 2021 at 12:12 am

    I guess the sky will never be clear after this

  25. Daniel Hudson on March 9, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Just give the drones parachutes

  26. ZaZ LEE on March 9, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Well. They have to use Ehang drone. Amzn they dont even have any drone

  27. King John Jhon Jon Jonathan Johnson Johnston Un IV on March 9, 2021 at 12:15 am

    you open your window for 0.001ms and all the amazon drones fly in and slice you to pieces

  28. Waxman on March 9, 2021 at 12:18 am

    This is all BS. MoFo’s will spot and follow drones like storm chasers and snatch the package once they drop. –A new way to finance drug addiction.

  29. Headless Alien on March 9, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Yay free drones

  30. Alan South West UK on March 9, 2021 at 12:18 am

    You state that crashing into a thing like a tree will be less catastrophic than crashing into something like someones car; I agree. You (at 3.40) then show a car parked and suddenly and very dramatically the car’s roof is impacted and seriously damaged along with the windscreen. Awful for the owner and terrible if in the car. Then the culprit of this damage is seen (a white Phantom type drone) to bounces away from the car. However, if the frame is frozen at 3.40 the culprit is NOT a drone but what appears to be a car or van battery dropped onto the vehicle. Can you explain this?

  31. Chris Davis on March 9, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Look at buying stock in drone delivery Canada. Look at the chart! WOW! The next Tesla?!

  32. Simon B on March 9, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Here’s your PS5, pi55 wet through.

    If live in a flat. Unlucky

  33. Badass Beaver on March 9, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Interesting idea but what if the drone malfunctions in which the package is dropped and it crashes through the window? Not something that I want to deal with and personally I rather see Amazon expand the lockers to accommodate larger packages.

  34. Haydi Baswedan on March 9, 2021 at 12:22 am

    What happens when someone throw rocks at it and destroy it? Then steal the delivery items and resell it on Amazon?

  35. sarvesh m on March 9, 2021 at 12:22 am

    This should be banned by government; it will replace many delivery and shipping jobs; which isn’t good.

  36. M Singh on March 9, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Will never work. Too many stolen parcels and claims. Also too slow, compared to a multi drop driver, who can deliver 30 parcels an hour.

  37. C-BIZ OFFICIAL on March 9, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Uav stock.

  38. Reshmi Rehman on March 9, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Will it deliver another drone ?

  39. a b on March 9, 2021 at 12:29 am

    But who operates drone

  40. raul soria on March 9, 2021 at 12:30 am

    UAVS Ageagle Ariel systems

  41. Paul on March 9, 2021 at 12:30 am

    No more jobs

  42. Cory English on March 9, 2021 at 12:31 am

    I feel like someone’s gonna go drone fishing. Or make a big net gun.

  43. bhushan pendharkar on March 9, 2021 at 12:32 am

    I jst imagined wht people would have thought in those days when first automobile ran on the roads or the aeroplane or the trains.With times things improve people r opportunistic.even today car theft takes place planes crash trains derail but still they operate…..Today convenience is the cause of all innovation.

  45. Out of the box on March 9, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Lets shot down these costly drones😆

    micheal rosen is using that today

  49. Singularity on March 9, 2021 at 12:40 am

    The challenge would be to make it cost-effective. Also the idea of so many drones buzzing in the air seems strange.

  50. adonis parts on March 9, 2021 at 12:41 am

    Plot twist: It’s gonna carry a minigun to deter drone hunters
