10 drons in most part deliver letters, magazines and newspapers.

By drons, the delivery is conducted to 30 settlements that are in remote and mountain areas.

“In September last year we officially launched the delivery of parcels, newspapers and letters by drons. Now, we conduct deliveries to 30 settlements in remote and mountain areas. We have already delivered about 1500 kilograms of cargo. We have 100 drons,” Sarsenov said.

He noted that “Kazpost” obtained drons for free and that the company operates on a service delivery model.

“We have switched to a service delivery model, that is we pay not for drons but for each travel. For us it is very effective, because we had cases when a car delivered two kilograms of newspapers over 150 kilometers of mountain serpentine. But the dron can lift two kilograms and cross mountains, which is about 40 kilometers,” Sarsenoc said.
