One Hour Delivery From Amazon

Amazon is now offering a one hour delivery service across many areas in the US. They have announced the launch of the service in the Tampa Bay area today.

One Hour Delivery

It will be interesting to see how it works and if it will be introduced in the UK.

One hour delivery in Manchester

 

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

it's only certain products and areas, you need to order using the 'prime now' app.

Re: One Hour Delivery From Amazon

That info is over 2 years old and afaik the FAA has still not given approval. Initially deliveries are by van.

If you need a quick delivery it seems a good idea.

Are these drones supposed to knock on your door?  If they drop/leave stuff outside around here then the local youths will likely pinch it (they'll probably nick the drone too).
