Fortune reports that Walmart has applied to the US Patent and Trademark Office for a "'delivery management system' that aims to improve upon last mile shipping - the final stretch extending to consumers' homes - by using robotics, sensors, and yes, blockchains, also often referred to as distributed ledgers." The application specifically refers to an "unmanned aerial delivery to secure location."
