UPS (UPS) CEO says wind and rain are holding back delivery drones

“You can’t fly them when it’s windy. You can’t fly them when it’s rainy,” Chief Executive Officer Carol Tome said Tuesday during an American Chamber of Commerce event. “There are lots of issues with drones.”

United Parcel Service Inc. has been experimenting for quite a long time with drone conveyances, yet that doesn’t mean the tech is good to go. The remarks underscore the organization’s moving way to unmanned aerial deliveries under Tome, who assumed control in mid-2020. Earlier CEO David Abney, a vocal defender of drone conveyance who saw the innovation one day ferrying packages to rural homes, pushed UPS to turn into the first organization to acquire Federal Aviation Administration authorization to operate a drone conveyance airline in 2019.
