From the Daily Mail’s Rosie Taylor:
Drones will one day deliver post to rural addresses, the head of Royal Mail suggested yesterday.
Moya Greene said she ‘would love to see’ the technology in operation as it would be a solution in remote areas.
The chief executive suggested that driverless trucks could also ‘probably’ be used by the postal service.
She was asked what she thought of drones at a conference and replied: ‘I’d love to see things like that happening.
‘I don’t think it’s going to be to every single address. I think it’s going to work in more remote places where you don’t have to deliver too much. But I’d love to see things like that.
‘I’d love to see how sensory technology is working so that we can probably see a day when we’re going to have driverless trucks.
‘Part of keeping up and being here for 500 years to come is to watch all of those things with great interest.’ Miss Greene, a Canadian, compared the new technology with the advent of driverless trains at airports.
