Wing drones are prepared to provide fresh food to consumers’ doors in Australia.
Wing, a start-up under Google moms and dad business Alphabet, on Tuesday released its business drone shipment service in North Canberra, Australia. The drones will provide fresh food, hot coffee and non-prescription health items to consumers’ houses within minutes, the business stated. Customers order products utilizing Wing’s mobile app.
“Wing has teamed up with local Canberra businesses to give customers the opportunity to have a range of goods delivered in a handful of minutes,” the company wrote in a blog post.
Wing graduated from X, Alphabet’s moonshot factory for future-tech projects, last year. It’s now an independent company owned by Alphabet, headed by James Burgess. The startup aims to build a drone delivery system and management platform to improve the transportation of goods.
Wing spent 18 months testing its drone deliveries in Australia. It’s also preparing to launch in Europe, with the introduction of service in the Helsinki area of Finland.
Wing’s delivery service will initially be offered to a limited set of eligible homes in the suburbs of Grace, Palmerston and Franklin. The company plans to expand over the upcoming weeks and months. Its launch partners include Kickstart Expresso, Capital Chemist, Pure Gelato, Jasper + Myrtle, Bakers Delight, Guzman Y Gomez and Drummond Golf.
