Wing, DoorDash and Mirvac debuts drone delivery service in Queensland

Restaurants and retailers will be able to make use of the service for their customers.

Wing, Australia's on-demand drone delivery service, has partnered with DoorDash and property group Mirvac to launch the first drone delivery service in the City of Ipswich, Queensland. 

Wing has established a hub for drone deliveries at Mirvac's Orion Springfield Central shopping centre in the fast-growing and innovative Ipswich area. The new operations centre makes it possible for local restaurants and retailers to use DoorDash's platform and Wing’s delivery drones to provide food and essentials to the surrounding communities. This includes parts of Redbank Plains, Springfield Central, Springfield Lakes, Spring Mountain, Brookwater, Augustine Heights, Camira, Bellbird Park, White Rock, Springfield, Greenbank and Goodna. 

Additionally, merchants such as Sushi Hub will be available via the service, known as ‘DoorDash Air’.

The project is also the first collaboration between the three companies.

"We're thrilled to officially launch in Ipswich and to team up with Mirvac and DoorDash to support consumers' demand for faster, more convenient, and sustainable delivery choices. Businesses need to be able to offer a range of delivery options, with the most appropriate option selected depending on the weight and size of the package. On-demand drone delivery helps address the costly last-mile delivery challenge for lightweight goods. It reduces road congestion and emissions while creating new economic opportunities for retailers and communities," said Simon Rossi, General Manager of Wing Australia. 

The partnership is a step towards drone delivery being commonplace. Rossi said in a previous interview, he expects drone delivery to move out of its early adopter phase and become available in large metro areas and to more businesses.
