Coles partners with Wing to deliver groceries via drone

In a pilot, Coles supermarkets has partnered with drone-delivery service Wing to deliver popular grocery items to consumers. 

Customers in Canberra can choose from more than 250 items including bread, fresh produce, snacks, convenience meals, health care items, and kitchen essentials and have them delivered by a drone in minutes. 

Coles chief executive e-commerce, Ben Hassing, described drones as the next evolution in delivery technology, saying it will help reduce the number of trucks on the road.

“By partnering with Wing, we’re able to offer our online customers another convenient option to purchase the Coles items they know and love and get them delivered straight to their door.”

Simon Rossi, GM of Wing Australia, said the partnership will offer online customers a convenient option to purchase groceries from Coles.

“In the past year, we’ve seen a significant increase in the use of our on-demand drone delivery service, with many customers finding the service especially useful as they stayed home, and relied on our contactless delivery service to deliver the items they needed.”

Wing has completed more than 100,000 drone deliveries in Australia, and in just the first two months of this year, has already surpassed 30,000 deliveries.

The service will operate between 8am to 4.30pm on weekdays and Saturdays and from 9am to 4pm on Sundays. Customers can place a delivery order during this time via the Wing app available to download on the App Store or Google Play.
