"There are some things that need to be improved before mid-to-long-distance delivery services are adopted in urban areas. Governments and companies need to deal with many challenges, such as the delivery of high-rise buildings, maximum payload limits, and weather-related issues," the ministry’s aviation policy leader Zheng Yongzhi said.
