At the beginning of this year Maersk Group launched a video in which it uses a drone to deliver a bucket of cookies to a tanker at sea. The firms aim was to support drones application in Maersk’s business operations on a daily basis. As for now Markus Kuhn, a supply chain manager at Maersk says that the firm will keep on testing drones and looks for a drone-making partner that could help them to haul a 10-kilogram package for 10 kilometres. Once this possibility exists, it would resolve Maersk biggest challenge, like sending an entire ship on an equipment delivery to a tanker. This usually has to be done in order to comply with regulations about protecting explosive cargo. It therefore seems, that Maersk could be another company that found a way to cut its costs with drones.
