UPS testing package delivery via drone

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- UPS is test-driving a new way to deliver packages: launching drones right from its vehicles.

The driver releases a drone right from the top of a package car. It delivers the package to a home and returns to the vehicle, while the driver makes more drop-offs in the meantime.

UPS tested the drone Monday in Florida. It could cut down on costly miles driven, especially in rural areas.

UPS says it has no plans to get rid of drivers -- the company just wants to make things more efficient.

There's no word on when it might roll out the drone delivery.
