UPS will team up with Verizon and its subsidiary, Skyward, to deliver retail products with drones through its Flight Forward division at The Villages in Florida.

In April 2020, UPS announced plans to work with CVS on prescription deliveries in The Villages.

“We will need the ability to manage and support multiple drones, flying simultaneously, dispatched from a centralised location, operating in a secure and safe environment. To do this at scale, alongside Verizon and Skyward, we’ll need the power of 5G,” said Carol B Tome, CEO of UPS.
