UPS CEO-elect David Abney said he sees potential for shipments by drone, but added that there are many issues to be resolved, particularly dealing with safety.
“We do believe that at some point in time that there will be a use for drones,” Abney said. “We’ve looked at that technology for a long time…. It may be very time-urgent, time-sensitive, expensive shipments or things like that.”
Abney made the comments during a Rotary Club of Atlanta luncheon on Monday. He will step into the top position at UPS on Sept. 1.
