Iran Plans Parcel Delivery Via Drones

Iran Post Company is planning to use indigenous unmanned aerial vehicles known as drones for “urgent deliveries” to state entities in Tehran, according to the state-run firm’s CEO, Hossein Mehri.
Mehri said the company will use drones manufactured for the first time by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology’s Faculty of Applied Science and Telecommunications, IRNA reported.
Global businesses such as the US-based e-commerce giant Amazon have been planning to adopt the controversial practice to reduce package delivery time to less than 30 minutes.
Despite security, environmental and privacy concerns, in late July, the US company succeeded in putting the aerial drone parcel delivery technology into practice in parts of Britain.
Iran Post Company’s drones will also need government permits to be able to use the drones in Tehran.
Nonetheless, Mehri is hopeful that the company will manage to convince authorities to give it the green light. He added that his company’s drones will be able to carry packages of up to 4 kilograms to destinations as far as 10 kilometers.
