UPS subsidiary UPS Flight Forward will use drones to deliver prescription medicines from a CVS pharmacy. to The Villages, Florida for the largest U.S. retirement community home, to more than 135,000 residents.

The service will use the Matternet M2 drone system.

Drone transport offers a fast delivery option for medicines that are time-sensitive while supporting social-distancing efforts.

Drone delivery options provide individuals with a convenient alternative to visiting a pharmacy.

This program can also help prioritize the protection of our healthcare heroes.

“Our new drone delivery service will help CVS provide safe and efficient deliveries of medicines to this large retirement community, enabling residents to receive medications without leaving their homes,” said Scott Price, UPS chief strategy and transformation officer.
