UPS announced it has successfully tested a drone that launches from the top of a delivery truck. The test was conducted in collaboration with drone-maker Workhorse. Sending drones to make deliveries from package cars could bolster efficiency in our network by reducing miles driven.

Maybe in Southern California where it doesn't rain, or snow. But even there the high winds would stop them. No one wants their package left randomly out in the open in the ice, snow or rain.

How would this be better and keep people from shooting them down?

She was smiling as she was driving. She doesn't realize how close she is to becoming unemployed. Why does UPS need her anymore? They don't. I am an enthusiastic supporter of this technology and the advance toward replacing entitled humans with machines. Affirmative action was the biggest destroyer of productivity and now its end is in clear sight. The savings will be astronomical for business and will make life much more affordable for the consumer. Want a good business opportunity? Build benches for the newly unemployed sitting on benchs after they become homeless and crying towls for their tears.
