Kroger is testing grocery delivery with drones.
The regional supermarket chain announced it is launching a “drone delivery pilot” this spring in two Ohio cities: Cincinnati and Monroe. According to a company release, the autonomous drones will be manufactured by Drone Express, a local delivery business under TELEGRID Technologies, Inc.

Through Kroger’s pilot program, residents in Cincinnati and Monroe will be able to place online orders on kroger.com/dronedelivery and have their packages delivered straight to their smartphone’s geolocation. This feature will reportedly help customers to get supplies while they are outside and don’t have an exact address to provide, whether it be a park, beach or yard.
