Domino’s Pizza plans to deliver food using drones, in partnership with Flirtey, with a commercial service launching early in 2017.

 

Pizzas will be falling from the skies within two months under a drone-delivery plan unveiled by Australian chain Domino’s recently!

 

The multibillion-dollar firm trialled the world’s first commercial pizza delivery today in conjunction with an Australian founded drone firm, with plans to make flying food deliveries widely available early next year.

 

 

But there’s a catch for Australian pizza lovers: drone deliveries will take place in New Zealand first due to the country’s more “forward-thinking” drone laws.

 

Domino’s Pizza chief executive Don Meij told News Corp the company intended to launch “the first commercial drone delivery service in the world,” with today’s trial the first step to receiving formal approval from New Zealand’s Civil Aviation Authority.
Mr Meij said the drone service, provided by aviation service Flirtey, would eventually allow customers to order one of four types of pizza from the Domino’s app, and receive a notification when a drone had flown the food to their home, hovering overhead.

“When it’s in the safety zone of your backyard, you will push a button in your app and it will come down attached to a cable,” he said. “As soon as it hits your hands, or a firm surface, it releases. All the technology is first class.”

 

The pizza-delivering DRU Drones will fly at speeds of 30km/h, 60m in the air to avoid powerlines, and will initially only fly 1.5km from the pizza store, though Domino’s expects to increase that distance to 10km.

Everyday, someone in Australia suffers a spinal cord injury. From workplace incidences, to road and water accidents or extreme sports, the event of permanent paralysis is always unexpected and frequently preventable.

PBF Australia (The Paraplegic Benefit Fund) was established to create greater awareness of these risks, with the aim of reducing the impact and incidence of spinal cord injury in Australia. Quickmail are proud to be members of Paraplegic Benefit Fund Australia.

Yesterday Quickmail had a presentation from Symon and Katie. On behalf of the staff at Quickmail, thank you for taking the time to talk to us. Your visit has no doubt left a strong impression with us all and left us thinking of ways to aim to reduce the incidence of serious injury at work, on the road and at play.

Some key statistics surrounding spinal cord injuries include the following:
- 3 spinal cord injuries per week in WA
- Approximately 141 spinal cord injuries per year in WA
- 46% of spinal cord injuries are motor vehicle related
- 34% of spinal cord injuries are from falls
- 11% of spinal cord injuries is an “other” category (i.e. violence, being hit by objects, jerked off a horse, etc.)
- 9% of spinal cord injuries are Aquatic related
- Average age of a spinal cord injury is 43 primarily due to slips, trips and falls but the common age bracket for young adults is 15-24 particularly in males.
