FedEx in high gear during holiday season
FedEx employees are working around the clock to make sure packages get to people in time for Christmas.
For the first time ever, some Walmart customers in Florida, Texas and Arizona will be able to have their packages delivered by drone.
Walmart's drone service officially launched for select customers in Tampa and Orlando, Florida; Phoenix and the Dallas-area just ahead of the holidays.
The nation's largest retailer has been working with national drone services provider DroneUp since 2020 when it began trialing deliveries of at-home COVID-19 self-collection kits.
Walmart announced in May 2022 that it was expanding its DroneUp delivery network to reach 4 million U.S. households across six states including Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Texas, Utah and Virginia by the end of the year.
