DoorDash has announced a partnership with drone technology company Wing that will allow customers to receive deliveries by air. The pilot program – which is taking place in Logan, Australia – will offer deliveries of convenience and grocery items through the DoorDash app. Customers will need to select a location where the drone can drop off the order and most should arrive in 15 minutes or less. The option will only be available to select customers at first, but the program is expected to expand in the coming months.
