Will Drone Technology in Supply Chain Be a Useful One?

SpendEdge Technology addresses the important question on the mind of all in the Technology Industry.

Drones have come a
long way from being a recreational machine to a tool that can invaluably assist
companies. They have been successfully used in aerial photography and
videography, construction, search and rescue missions, mining activities,
security. But lately, companies have started using drone technology to simplify
their supply chains and bypass the traditional road network. Not only this,
drones have been used for
inventory management, building
inspection, intralogistics, security, and yard management.

At SpendEdge, they understand that drone technology opens up a world of possibilities for companies’ supply chain. But there are certain challenges that drone operators must address before fully implementing drones in the supply chain.

What’s Wrong with
Drone Technology?

Insurance and drone

Drone technology
is in its initial phase and costly. The idea of unmanned vehicles flying
hundreds of feet above the ground, carrying valuable goods to be delivered is
not going well with insurance companies. Moreover, the idea is largely untested
which makes it hard for insurance companies to consider the insurance
of drones.

Weather issues

Weather is no
major hurdle for traditional delivery systems using trucks and vans. They have
sufficient cover against rain and
adverse weather conditions. But drones till now have no such security.
This will be a major challenge for companies in drone technology. They will
need drones that can operate in adverse weather conditions. To know how
companies are planning to address this situation, get in touch with

Urban delivery

promising drones to be the future of deliveries show them in a rural setting.
They need to note that a large majority of the population in the US and other
parts of the world live in urban areas with high-rise buildings. Drones can be risky in such an urban
setting considering the obstacles and will require more improvisation to
deliver in urban settings with ease.
