An Ohio construction supplier on Friday officially delivered its first shipment by drone.
Winsupply announced on its Twitter account that the inaugural delivery had successfully landed.
A drone operated by fellow Dayton company Drone Express picked up the package at Winsupply’s Miamisburg distribution center and flew it some three miles away to the supplier’s Centerville location. The shipment contained a part made by flow control products manufacturer NIBCO.
Winsupply officials said the delivery would be the first of “a wide range of products weighing under five pounds” shipped from its Miamisburg hub.
