Logistics: U.S. consumers' opinion on drone-delivered packages 2016

This statistic illustrates the findings of a 2016 U.S. consumer survey on whether respondents think it will take one, two, five or more years before their first package will be delivered via drone. According to 31 percent of respondents, it will take more than five years before they order their first drone-delivered package. Amazon and DHL have already begun testing drone delivery, and so has Switzerland's postal service.
