Intermountain Medical drones may allow a new path forward for distributors

Electric drones are becoming an increasingly viable option for distributors as technology is improving to allow accurate cost-effective delivery. Intermountain Healthcare is becoming a pioneer of this new drone technology to deliver medications throughout the Salt Lake Valley. The Zipline drones used are able to deliver 40 lb packages within a 50-mile radius of the, now under construction, South Jordan flight center. The drones are accurate enough to deliver on most people’s driveways and the second-generation drones include swappable batteries that allow for continuous operation. These improvements in the technology could allow for faster reactions to consumers who expect quick deliveries while giving distributors an opportunity to cut out emissions and traffic.
