Global healthcare logistics market: Emergence of drones in healthcare logistics
The applications of drones are growing beyond military use to the logistics segment, particularly for delivery operations in remote or rural areas. Drones can deliver essential healthcare supplies such as medicines, pharmaceutical drugs, and small-sized and low weight medical devices to remote destinations. The use of drones will help logistics companies customize their supply chain model effectively based on real-time information received from the UAV. The growing use of drones for delivering healthcare supplies is expected to improve market opportunities for global healthcare logistics players.
