Alibaba is a year late, also tests drone delivery

February 4, 2015 10:44 | By | Add a Comment

Alibaba, the chinese online merchant / trade portal, had a fantastic launch on the stock market last year, with over 500 million customers and a net worth of over 200 billion USD, more than Coca Cola or Disney. Now they’re testing drone delivery, much like Amazon and DHL before them. A total of 450 customers were able to register for the special air-drop delivery, though the drone only flies from the outskirts of Peking to the China World Trade Center, where it is then picked up and delivered by a regular courier.

But hey, at least they produced a snazzy and mildly entertaining ad video. Notice the synchronously-waving guys at 00:45 🙂
