B2C Europe and Parcer test drone delivery in Holland

Two Dutch companies employ IoT and an alphabet soup of other technologies that includes GPS and RFID to explore the use of drones for e-commerce package delivery across the Netherlands.

European cross-border delivery specialist B2C Europe and the developer of internet-connected delivery boxes, Parcer have teamed up to test drone delivery service for e-commerce orders in Holland.

Drone delivery
The pilot program employs the use of smart, internet-connected Parcer mailboxes as the delivery site for the package delivery drones. The drones fly on GPS and once at the delivery site, sends out an RFID signal to the Parcer delivery box to automatically.

Once delivered, the box closes, locks, and informs the recipient of the delivery

Parcer delivery boxes

Parcer mailboxes, already in use across the Netherlands, resemble large safes and can only be opened by the use of a unique single-use code, which is generated automatically when consumers place an order online. This code then becomes part of the standard vendor/carrier agnostic address label.
