The food drone delivery industry receives significant attention at the ongoing 2023 China International Fair for Trade in Services in Beijing. In Shenzhen, many business districts and office buildings are equipped with drone delivery pickup kiosks. During the lunch peak hours, customers can have their orders delivered by drones, which reduces the customers’ waiting time and compensates for the inadequate delivery capacity. Moreover, drones can deliver orders to tourist attractions.
