Wing and Walmart Collaborate to Introduce Drone Deliveries Covering Six Miles Across Dallas

Alphabet's Wing Teams Up with Walmart to Bring Swift Drone Deliveries to Dallas-Fort Worth Region

Wing’s drone fleet operates with a high degree of automation, enabling remote monitoring and management. According to an official announcement by Alphabet’s subsidiary, “Wing’s technology allows operators to oversee the system from a remote location, which means pilots won’t need to be stationed at stores or customer homes. The aircraft essentially fly themselves, so each operator is approved to safely oversee many drones at the same time.”

Wing has previously partnered with Walgreens to bring drone deliveries to the DFW region. Meanwhile, Walmart had introduced its DroneUp delivery service in 2022, serving around four million households across states like Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Texas, Utah, and Virginia. However, reports emerged earlier this year that Walmart had laid off 418 DroneUp employees.
