Abstract:Drone technology offers new possibilities in different logistic sectors. One of these sectors is food delivery services. However, how mature is the technology for this service application? The Space 53 Quick Scan tool was used to enable the research, which outlined the readiness of different dimensions. These dimensions were technical-, social-, business-, ethical-, and legal readiness. The results outlined the importance of constant development along each of the five dimensions. The intercorrelation of these levels enhanced this claim and showed further insights into the future of this service. Nevertheless, different regions reached different levels of maturity of drone technology in food delivery services, in which the legal regulations played a defining role in hindering the technology to embrace fully. Research should answer this question as well as identifying possible limitations and challenges. Furthermore, the research should enable future implications among the topic of drone technology in food delivery services. Primarily through the global pandemic of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, new services and technologies should be empowered.
