Australia Post to use drones to deliver blood

Australia Post is considering using drones to deliver blood donations.

Christine Holgate - who is the CEO of Australia Post - has revealed she's been inspired by the way the Swiss are using the unmanned aerial vehicle to carry items from A to B and she'd like to incorporate that into the postal system Down Under.

Speaking to a Senate committee, Holgate said: "In some countries, including Switzerland, they are using drones [to be able] to carry blood to points of accidents and Swiss Post are doing that. I am a great believer in automation, but it shouldn't be at the cost of jobs, though. The Australian postal service is currently working with Swiss Post to see what we can learn from what they have done, and to see how we too can offer those services for accident and emergency."
