Amazon introduced a gamechanger Sunday night when 60 Minutes featured founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. Bezos let us in on a look at the future of Amazon fulfillment by previewing Amazon Prime Air, a system that utilizes autonomous drones to deliver packages under 5 lbs. and in 30 minutes. Amazon released this short video shortly after:
Don’t expect to see these drones to roll out significantly until at least a couple more years. The unmanned drones must pass several FAA guidelines first.
From Google Shopping Express to Amazon Prime Air, we can see that the future of fulfillment is innovative, efficient, and well…futuristic. It won’t come as such a surprise when Google inevitably announces their futuristic delivery system featuring unmanned, self-driving vehicles.
