According to a report conducted for Wing by Gaia Consulting Oy, drones could replace 6 percent of deliveries done by motor vehicles and consumer pick-ups in 2030. Because of this, drone deliveries could reduce both congestion and traffic accidents as well as Helsinki greenhouse gas emissions. The reduction of emissions has been calculated at 2,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions, which is an estimated annual carbon sink of about 250 hectares of forest.

Last weekend, Wing reached the milestone of 100,000 drone deliveries globally. The growth is fast-paced: the second quarter of 2021 alone saw more drone deliveries than the entire previous year. Finnish consultancy company Gaia Consulting Oy recently conducted a study to determine what drone delivery at scale could mean for a city like Helsinki, and this is what they found:

This September will mark our second anniversary in Logan, Australia -- a neighbour of Brisbane with a population of 300,000 -- and it’s  been an unprecedented time in more ways than one. Between bushfires of 2019, and the more recent COVID-19 lockdowns, Logan  residents have ordered and received more than 50,000 deliveries directly to their homes by Wing delivery drones.

Pretty great, if they’ve experienced it.

Pollsters have asked the public in the U.S. and Europe for their attitudes toward drone delivery a number of times in the past ten years. While the results of the surveys vary--support for drone delivery ranging from 23%1 to 50%2 -- all of them have one thing in common: they were conducted among respondents who had never seen, much less received, anything delivered by a drone. Today, researchers at Virginia Tech published the results of the first survey conducted among residents in a city with an active drone delivery service, and the results are quite interesting.

For our customers in Logan & Canberra in Australia, Southwest Virginia in the United States, and Helsinki in Finland, drone delivery has become a regular part of the routine over the past few years. However, for those who we’re not yet able to deliver to, we receive lots of really clever and curious questions about our service and our technology. Starting today - we’re hoping to lift the lid on our service through a new video series called “Ask Wing” -  where we’ll do our best to answer all of your queries. Got something you want answered? Let us know by tagging @Wing on Facebook or Twitter with your question.

Drone technology has the potential to become an important part of Australia’s delivery sector, particularly in fulfilling ‘last-mile’ deliveries. Last-mile delivery is particularly challenging in Australia, where logistics providers face congested city roads at one extreme and sparsely populated countryside at the other. Consumers are doing more of their shopping online, but still face limited delivery options. Drone delivery has the potential to save businesses and consumers in Australia time and money, while also helping to reduce congestion, greenhouse gas emissions and accidents on the road.

2020 requires no introduction; it was a difficult year for many.

Here are our most optimistic takeaways from the most challenging year we hope any of us ever face, and some hope for a better 2021.

Whether it's a new coat of paint for the study, landscaping the garden, or a complete bathroom makeover, construction and maintenance work can create headaches for homeowners and tradespeople alike when tradies don't have the right tools or parts to complete the job.

One year ago, we started our first drone deliveries to residents in the Logan community in Queensland, Australia.

News cameras jostled for position as Christiansburg local Todd Joyce used the Wing app to order popcorn and chocolates on October 18, 2019. He made history when he pressed the order button, becoming one of the first in the United States to use a residential drone delivery service. The scene was mirrored at two other homes that day, as the Sensemeier family and the Passek-Collvers joined the Joyces, simultaneously placing three orders to kick off Wing’s first-of-its-kind trial in Virginia. Once the orders were placed, everyone looked up.
