UPS launches drone business, seeks to certify multiple pilots - Reuters

United Parcel Service Inc (UPS.N), the world’s largest package delivery firm, on Tuesday unveiled its drone delivery subsidiary and said it has applied for the Federal Aviation Administration certifications needed to expand the business.

The launch of UPS Flight Forward marks the latest move in the battle between UPS, Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) and Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) for the lead in the nascent U.S. drone delivery industry.

UPS said Flight Forward could receive FAA certification for multiple drones and pilots as early as this year, potentially becoming the first company to win such approvals.
