Citing data from am AlphaBeta study, Project Wing said estimates showed that, at scale, drone delivery could add $30 million to $40 million in annual revenue for ACT businesses.
It said delivery costs could be cut by $12 million a year by 2030.
"Small drone delivery produces 99% less emissions than deliveries made by car and if even a small proportion of deliveries and pick-ups by car and truck are shifted to drones, congestion in the ACT could be reduced by as many 35 million vehicle kilometres per year by 2030, which would result in the reduction of 8000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions," the company said, quoting again from the AlphaBeta study.
"Drone delivery has the potential to offer greater autonomy to the 13,000 people with a disability and 6700 elderly people living in the ACT who may need assistance with mobility. The potential reduction in vehicle kilometres could avoid up to 70 road accidents annually in the ACT."
