The UAV delivery is carried out on Thursday, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles from UPS shares UAV manufacturer CyPhy Works, is transported sprays.(speaker factory)

The trial opened UPS UAV remote areas or inaccessible areas of commercial shipping more extensive testing. UPS vice president in charge of industrial engineering • Chuck Holland indicates: "UPS has a traditional focus on development of new technologies, we are looking at every step of the development of unmanned aerial vehicles." But he declined to say whether it will one day wider use of UAVs. UPS testing is from the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to implement new legislation in late August, after allowing enterprises to use a small unmanned aerial vehicles, for the first time in the United States through the important commercial shipping UAV.(speaker factory)

One motivation for UPS UAV technology investment is the company's labor costs higher than FedEx, because its drivers, parcel pick workers and other workers not to unionize. However, the widespread use of unmanned technology may make the relationship with the Teamsters Teamsters complicated.(speaker factory)
