Walmart invests in drone delivery service provider DroneUp

In our continuous efforts to provide customers with the items they want, we know that this requires a well-coordinated network of delivery solutions that spans streets, sidewalks, and the sky. Some of these solutions are still emerging, but they have shown encouraging results.

Last year, we cooperated with DroneUp, a national drone service provider, to launch a trial delivery of a self-service collection kit for COVID-19 at home. Tests have shown that we can provide customers with delivery in minutes instead of hours. Now, after hundreds of drone deliveries have been safely completed in Walmart stores, we are investing in DroneUp to continue developing a scalable last-mile delivery solution.

DroneUp operates an on-demand drone delivery network that matches its database of more than 10,000 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified pilots with missions nationwide. Since working with DroneUp last year, we have valued their technical expertise, world-class operations, and experienced management team—and their commitment to help FAA ensure the highest level of safety in every delivery.

As a well-respected industry innovator, DroneUp is the first operator to use the FAA 107.39 exemption, which allows delivery flights on personnel and mobile vehicles. DroneUp has commercial operations throughout the United States and is an authorized government drone service provider in 11 states in the United States, providing services to public sector organizations. Wal-Mart already has a considerable amount of infrastructure-4,700 stores stock more than 100,000 most commonly purchased items, located within 10 miles of 90% of the US population. This puts us in a unique position in executing drone deliveries, which is why our investment in DroneUp applies not only to the sky, but also to the ground. In the next few months, we will start our first operation in a store in Bentonville, Arkansas.

In April, we announced a similar investment in Cruise, an all-electric self-driving car company. Through these commitments, we are learning how these technologies can provide customers with the items they need.

Large-scale drone delivery is within reach. DroneUp's expertise, coupled with our retail footprint and proven history of logistics innovation, enables us to achieve our goals on this day. Because when it comes to the future of drone delivery, we know that the sky is infinite.
