Amazon’s drone delivery is coming to Texas – TechCrunch

The use of drone deliveries is intermittent. After all, there are a number of hurdles – both regulatory and private – that a company must overcome. Therefore, all parties tend to proceed slowly and deliberately. While such slowed-down innovation isn’t always a sign of struggle, companies have certainly looked into it as well — including Amazon, which initially stumbled out the gate.

Almost exactly a month after announcing its plans to bring shipments to the central California city of Lockwood, the company is unveiling yet another expansion. Later this year, Amazon will add College Station, home base of Texas A&M University, to the list. The company cites partnerships with the school and the city as the main reason for the choice.

“Amazon’s new facility represents a tremendous opportunity for College Station to be at the forefront of developments in drone delivery technology,” Mayor Karl Mooney said in an official press release. “We look forward to partnering with Amazon and Texas A&M and are confident that Amazon will be a productive, conscientious and responsible participant in our community.”

There’s not much additional detail here, but over the past few months, Texas has become something of a hot bed for these very early-stage drone deliveries. In March, Israeli startup Flytex announced it was planning pilot deliveries in Granbury, a city of 10,000 in the Dallas/Forth Worth metro area. The following month, Alphabet-owned company expanded its operations to the nearby towns of Frisco and Little Elm.

While Amazon seems to lack Wing’s lead, the company has one very important thing the others don’t: a massive integrated retail operation. Amazon’s drone delivery is coming to Texas – TechCrunch
