Watch video: Foodpanda collaborates with ST Engineering on drone food delivery trials

Why did the chicken cross the sky? This week, five packets of ayam penyet did, when food delivery service Foodpanda used a drone to deliver the popular fried chicken dish from the Marina South Pier to a ship located 3km offshore, reports

This was a welcome treat for seafarers aboard the POSH Bawean, a PACC Offshore Services Holding (POSH) vessel designated to support crew changes for cargo ships calling at Singapore during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Back in March, Foodpanda signed an agreement with Singapore Technologies Engineering (STE) to use DroNet (STE’s drone network system), to trial the delivery of light food items over distances of up to 3km.
