Amazon has taken a step further in catering to its huge customer base. This time around Amazon.com will be roping in high-end technology to deliver packages to customers. Amazon is experimenting with a novel delivery system which uses ‘Drones’ as carriers. The system, is presently, termed as ‘Amazon Prime Air’. The drone will air lift packages and deliver it to customers who are within 16km of Amazon’s delivery radar. The drone will be able to fly packages weighing 2.27 kg approximately. These unmanned air vehicles, called drones, will slash delivery time by almost 30 minutes. However the system will touch reality only after a span of 4 to 5 years since the vehicles are yet to obtain the consent of the FAA. Once the system goes ariel, product deliveries will become quicker and less tedious.

The drones will be technologically affluent to deliver products to customers who live within 16 km of Amazon’s distribution points. Amazon has many such distribution centers spread out across different tracts and devising such a delivery system will only make customer servicing more feasible.

So once you place an order online you can expect the product to reach you much faster than a pizza!
