The Future of HVACR Delivery
On August 12, 2022 Winsupply made history with the industry’s first-ever drone delivery. The drone flight marks the beginning of Winsupply consistently delivering products to their destinations.
The drones can fly three to five miles, depending on battery life and payload, and can hold 15-20 pounds. Under FAA rules, the Winsupply drones are only allowed to carry up to five pounds.
“They can go to a residential address, a commercial address, or it can even follow GPS coordinates to someone’s mobile device,” said James Turlington III, IT director for Winsupply. “So this technology really does have the ability already to go direct to a contractor wherever they are.”
Currently, the operation is in a six-month proof-of-concept phase. If the return on investment turns out as Winsupply predicts, the drone program will become a legitimate Winsupply delivery option.
