Swiss Post Set to Test Mail Delivery by Drone

A test project between the Swiss Postal Service and Matternet will test the feasibility of mail delivery by drone on Swiss postal routes. It could be pretty soon when the sound of a drone coming through the valleys signal the delivery of mail, replacing the familiar postman. cool

Swiss Post is working with drone outfit Matternet for the duration of the tests. The company’s first drone can transport packages up to 1 kg (2.2 pounds) a distance of 20 km (12.4 miles) on a single charge.
