French express delivery company GeoPost has successfully tested a delivery drone for same-day parcel orders. The drone trial is part of GeoPost’s GeoDrone project, in partnership Atechsys, and took place at its drone delivery testing centre Centre d’Etudes et d’Essais pour Modèles Autonomes.

The drone delivered a parcel with 40 x 30 x 20 cm (16 x 12 x 8 in) dimensions and weighing 4kg weight within a 12 mile radius. The test involved an automated take-off, flight, successful landing and delivery, ending with a return to base.

GeoPost hopes that further refinements to its drone technology will mean being able to access more remote areas, such as mountains, rural areas, and even islands.
