Decathlon Poland in cooperation with Spartaqs Group and Lublinensis Dron Transport is implementing new solutions for the delivery of goods. These will be the first drone deliveries in Poland. The tests are to start on 6 May.

First, the transport of goods within Lublin will be analyzed. Ultimately, the drone is to handle just-in-time deliveries all over Poland.

Decathlon is to use the HERMES II drone for its deliveries. Despite having similar dimensions, this drone is lighter than its predecessor, according to the manufacturer – the new design has twice the range. Hermes II, compared to Hermes I, has a more efficient drive unit. Additionally, it is possible to attach various transport containers, which can be automatically detached from the drone.
