The giant retailer is using drones to deliver packages from warehouses to stores, in a move that may be making it easier for it to sell products to customers in more densely populated areas.
In a post on its website, Amazon said it is working with companies like Spumoni Garden, Epic Gardens, and Paragon Botanical Gardens in the U.K. to develop robotic delivery services that can be installed in warehouses.
Amazon’s drone delivery services have been used by the company for deliveries of a wide variety of items.
For example, the company has partnered with the U-Haul in the past, and it also has its own delivery service called Freightliner.
But Amazon is now looking to expand its delivery services into areas with high demand, including cities that are becoming more congested due to climate change, the post says.
The company is working on two drones that can carry up to six packages per hour and deliver packages in three hours.
Amazon said the company is using Amazon drones to provide delivery in the following areas: U.S. and Canada Amazon’s drones are capable of carrying up to three packages per minute.
Amazon is also working with Epic Gardens and Paragoons to build robotic delivery systems for its warehouses.
These drones are used for the delivery of items like food, toiletries, toilet paper, and other products, and Amazon said these drones are currently able to carry up the following items: 12 boxes of laundry detergent; 10 boxes of cleaning products; and 12 boxes per day of paper towels.
Amazon says that its delivery drones can carry items up to 12 inches wide and can travel at speeds of up to 60 mph.
Amazon plans to roll out the delivery drones to its fulfillment centers in the coming weeks, and the company said it plans to begin offering them to Amazon customers in the fall.
The Amazon drones are also capable of delivering products in three-to-six hours, Amazon wrote.
The drone delivery service will initially be offered in the first two weeks of 2019, and there will be additional drone deliveries after that.
Amazon has said that the drones will help it to provide greater fulfillment services to its customers.
