Amazon filed a patent for a flying warehouse which is a giant mothership carrying retail products and drone delivery system called “airborne fulfillment center”.
The mothership will have shuttles to lower the drones so that they deliver and carry stocks. All components might communicate with each other through a mesh network.
This patient truly reveals Amazon’s plan to use drones in their delivery system. Amazon said that combination of drones and flying warehouses would deliver goods faster than the conventional ground warehouses.
