Drones in logistics

Transporting goods by airmail

Swiss Post is at the forefront of drone development for logistics. It plans to use drones for transporting special items in future.

State-of-the-art technology is changing the logistics sector. Drones will take on a growing role in logistics in the future – especially over the last mile.

Swiss Post plans to use drones in various ways: transporting high priority consignments, delivering to people who live in isolated areas and providing supplies to places cut off from the outside world after a storm.

Drones will be used by Swiss Post in future in those areas where it makes economic sense and is technically feasible. They are now being used selectively to complement parcel delivery, but not to replace it.

The Swiss Post early Label

The Swiss Post early Label stands for innovations which Swiss Post tests and develops together with its customers. New products or services are identified by the label and launched on the market at an early stage in order to obtain feedback and input for the purposes of further development.
