As of 17 December 2018, Swiss Post will begin transporting lab samples across the Zurich lake basin on behalf of the Zentrallabor Zürich (ZLZ) lab. Test flights in June demonstrated that the drones provide true added value to the laboratory. They are about five times faster than conventional road transport, save valuable time for patients and are also more ecological.
The people of Lugano have become accustomed to seeing the Swiss Post drone in the skies. It reliably transports blood samples an average of 15 times a day, back and forth between two hospitals – and it keeps getting faster. It can now also fly in rainy weather.
It’s that time of year again and Santa Claus has his work cut out. Before the holidays he answers thousands of children’s letters. Swiss Post will support him wholeheartedly again this year and delight young letter writers with a small surprise.
