Since mid-March, Swiss Post, the Ticino EOC hospital group and drone manufacturer Matternet have been successfully conducting initial drone flights in Lugano. Modern delivery drones will transport laboratory samples between two EOC hospitals. Swiss Post also conducted tests with self-driving delivery robots. In future, delivery robots could make an excellent addition to delivery logistics and fill a gap in the market that Swiss Post has not yet explored.
