The plan is to build these beehives in cities, the shape is designed to blend into urban landscapes. 

Here’s how it will work:

• Amazon trucks will deliver packages to the beehive

• Robots inside will take the packages to designated levels

• Drones will pick the packages and deliver them to their respective locations

Amazon’s continuous investment into drones is an attempt to make package deliveries more efficient.
