Deuce Drone, a last-mile delivery specialist for bricks-and-mortar businesses, has signed to trial a new grocery delivery programme in Alabama.
The test, in the city of Mobile, will see produce from Rouses Market delivered to customers around the city.
The trial will begin this autumn and will make use of an aerial drone delivery interface system (ADDIS).
Rhett Ross, CEO of Deuce Drone, said Rouses Markets is an ideal test case for his company’s last-mile delivery solution because of its footprint, and commitment to being first with everything.
He commented: “We’re excited to partner with Rouses Markets and work together to alter the landscape of home delivery.”
Rouses Markets already offers personal shopping and delivery services that allow customers to shop online and get deliveries in as little as an hour, but Donny Rouse, CEO, is committed to exploring more convenient and innovative ways.
He said: “Drone delivery offers the fastest, safest delivery store to door. We should be able to get groceries to customers in 30 minutes or even less.
“Plus it’s more cost efficient, meaning we can save customers time and money.”
