Walmart to test drone delivery of grocery, household items in battle with Amazon


Walmart Inc said on Wednesday it would run a pilot project for delivery of grocery and household products through automated drones, along with end-to-end delivery firm Flytrex, as the U.S. retailer looks to beef up its delivery business.


Bentonville, Arkansas-based Walmart said the test would start in Fayetteville, North Carolina, with cloud-controlled drones picking up and dropping off select items.


"We know that it will be some time before we see millions of packages delivered via drone. That still feels like a bit of science fiction," Tom Ward, senior vice-president, customer products, said in a statement.
