Royal Mail to increase its drone fleet over the next three years

Royal Mail has announced plans to add 50 more drones to its fleet of 500 over the next three years in order to create added postal drone routes.

They have partnered up with drone company Windracers with plans to further reduce its overall carbon emissions while enhancing its overall delivery time.

Royal Mail has said that the move will provide quicker and more convenient services for remote communities.

The plan is to eventually move away from current services, which include ferries, conventional aircraft and land-based delivery.

The first routes for the new service include the Isles of Scilly, Shetland Islands, Orkney Islands and the Hebrides.

Royal Mail said it was aiming to use up to 200 drones over the next three years, which would mean an increase to just over 500 that will serve across the UK.
