Uber’s drone delivery service could launch this summer

June 13, 2019

Uber is now seeking to deploy a fleet of drones in order to deliver food for its Uber Eats program.

According to a Bloomberg report, Uber is seeking approval from the FAA to fly drones to deliver food for Uber Eats. If approved, the company plans to begin a pilot program in San Diego this summer.

The proposed drone service wouldn’t deliver food directly to customers, rather take deliveries to a pre-determined landing zone where Uber Eats delivery drivers would pick up the food and deliver it to customers.

Another proposed option would have the drones land on top of the parked delivery vehicles that can be identified by a QR code.

The company believes customers will use drone service for faster and cheaper deliveries.

A 1.5 mile delivery would take ground transportation on average 21 minutes to complete. With a drone, the delivery could be completed in an average of 7 minutes.

Dara Khosrowshahi, Uber Elevate CEO, said the company plans to unveil its own line of customized drones that could achieve speeds of up to 70 mph. About a year ago, Khosrowshahi told an audience at a flying-taxi conference that “we need flying burgers.”

According to Kate Fraser, Head of Aviation Policy at Uber, drone food delivery might be open across markets around 2022.
