Valqari, the creator of the patented Drone Delivery Station and provider of last inch mailbox solutions for drone deliveries, has been awarded its latest patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). With a priority date of January 2, 2014, the patent (patent no. 11,117,680) covers a broad range of claims in the field of drone delivery and Valqari’s delivery infrastructure, from general UAV delivery to protecting users’ packages from theft, weather, and other nuisances.

Equipped with best-in-class hardware and software, the Drone Delivery Station is completely platform-agnostic, operating seamlessly with any drone manufacturer and further solidifying Valqari as the ideal solution for drone delivery. Effortlessly handling e-commerce and food delivery, the Drone Delivery Station also provides value for hospitality, healthcare, and maritime applications. Previously difficult places to reach, such as remote villages and rural areas, can now have medicine and other important parcels easily and securely delivered.
