The Future of Healthcare Logistics—Delivery by Drone
Even in a world that feels more connected than ever, there are still people and places that are very hard to reach. And if someone is facing a medical emergency in one of those remote areas, a quick delivery of needed medical supplies can mean the difference between life and death.
This short film from TED@UPS looks to the skies, where a partnership between UPS, drone technology company Zipline, and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, is bringing urgent medical deliveries by drone to remote regions of Rwanda. It also explores how drone technology could change the face of healthcare logistics around the globe—as well as on-demand logistics for other industries.
