HYLIO + GOPATO MAKE HISTORY: PERFORM FIRST COMMERCIAL DRONE DELIVERY IN COSTA RICA & LATIN AMERICA / by HYLIO ADMIN

GoPato + Hylio

Between January 16 – 22, 2017 Hylio performed delivery beta tests using drones with courier service GoPato in Cartago, Costa Rica.

This marks the first commercial drone deliveries within Costa Rica, and all of Latin America.

Orders were recorded faster than traditional deliveries with fulfillment within 10 minutes or less. This was much faster compared to the 45 to 50 minute standard delivery time.

These controlled tests transported 1.5KG up to a 3KM radius from stores AMPMDoña Dona, and Hooters.

Hylio plans on increasing these numbers within a few months to 2.5KG packages and a 5KM radius with a 10KM max range.

Full drone delivery service in Costa Rica is scheduled to begin within a few months after further testing.
