Call it a test, a trial, or maybe more accurately just a marketing stunt. This week Alibaba conducted a 3-day trial giving 450 customers a chance to have their goods delivered by remote-control drone. The e-commerce company’s online marketplace TaoBao, partnered with logistics company Shanghai YTO Express to deliver packages of ginger tea to customers within a limited radius of their distribution sites.
