Drone delivery startup Wing sees strong demand for rapid fulfillment of fast-mile needs, says company CFO Shannon Nash. Their survey found 74% of consumers want fast, on-demand deliveries. As the holiday season and last-minute needs accelerate, Wing aims to serve this market. The Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) subsidiary already conducted over 350,000 deliveries across 3 continents. Nash says partnerships with Walmart (WMT), Doordash (DASH), and other retailers enable further reach. She notes Wing looks to grow in new metro areas with partners, building on success serving urban communities. However, Nash highlights opportunity for more everyday household items and grocery deliveries. While food drives volume now, consumers want speed for other daily essentials purchases too. As instant shopping expectations rise, Wing believes there's room for drones beyond takeout in last-mile delivery scenarios.
