In Helsinki, a new method for the transportation of pharmaceutical products to customers will be tested. In a pilot spanning a week, select products from the Lauttiksen Apteekki pharmacy, located in Lauttasaari, Helsinki, will be delivered via drone to neighboring Jätkäsaari, located 2km away. The aim of the pilot is to gather experience in regards to the suitability of drones for the transport of pharmacy products, and to test the new service concept with customers.
Stephen Sutton, the Managing Director for Flyby Guys, will be operating as Pilot in Command for the duration of the trial period, and is hoping for a successful trial, not only in terms of the delivery process itself, but also in regards to social acceptance from the people living in the area.
