Amazon dream of Blimp Warehouses: As soon as Amazon was established, Jeff Bezos set out to make it the world’s largest bookshop. What’s next? Taking its warehouses to new heights by making them fly. At the very least,
There are hundreds of Amazon warehouses, referred to as “Fulfillment Centers,” all around the world. The corporation invested over $14 billion in new facilities between 2010 and 2013. It was only recently revealed by tech analyst Zoe Leavitt that this patent had been submitted in 2014.
An “airborne fulfillment center (AFC) and the utilization of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to transport things from the AFC to users” is described by Amazon. An aerial warehouse with smaller drones that can move from the sky to the ground and back is depicted in a patent at a height of 45,050 feet. There would still be people working in various places, and shuttles would be used to convey them and to fuel and repair the ship as a whole.
Amazon could desire a flying warehouse in some of the circumstances described in the patent. There are a number of ways in which the AFC may be used, including to promote or market products and/or meet anticipated high demand in an area (e.g, a sporting event, concert, or another gathering).” Stockrooms filled with popular things such as popular books, shoes, video games, and tablets are also seen in the patent illustrations.
Amazon’s vision for a flying warehouse.
However, a patent does not always imply that Amazon intends to carry out the plan to build a skyscraper. Still, the corporation is putting a lot of effort into taking to the skies. The first drone delivery was made earlier this month in Cambridge, England, using a specially constructed Prime Air facility. There have been doubts raised regarding the significance of this achievement, considering the proximity of the purchaser’s residence to the facility. In order to reduce drone delivery times, a flying warehouse might be used to bring the drones closer together.
