(Newser) – For the first time, an unmanned drone will be delivering packages to residents of a remote European island. The company behind the industry first isn't Amazon or Google, but DHL. Deutsche Post AG, better known in the US as DHL, is Europe’s largest parcel service. Their taxi-yellow quadcopters have been tasked with taking medicine to Juist, an island in the North Sea accessible only by boat or plane.
