LOGAN is fast becoming the drone delivery capital of the world.

Residents are having everything from cooked chooks to power boards and tools delivered by air as Wing branches out to cover more of the city.

During March's three-day COVID-19 lockdown, more than 1000 items were delivered, and the growth was not slowing as Logan embraced the future of food and goods delivery.

So far this year, Wing has made more than 18,000 deliveries.

Sushi rolls and coffee were popular items, as well as eggs, milk and butter. Whole cooked chickens were also being taken to the sky as people opted to stay home.

"It is convenient to order, rather than putting your kids in the car and running to the store," Wing's head of public policy and community relations, Jesse Suskin, said.

But non-food goods were being delivered too as people began working from home more often during government-imposed restrictions.

Wing is also delivering to more offices and industrial areas than ever before.

"What's interesting is we are seeing that growth sustained, even as the restrictions were being eased," Mr Suskin said.

"Logan is the fastest growing delivery area in the world.

"We do thousands of deliveries every week in Logan city."

"Word of mouth really spreads."

From a small start in two suburbs, Wing has now expanded to include Loganlea, Waterford West, Slacks Creek, Logan Central, Woodridge, Kingston, Park Ridge, Browns Plains, Heritage Park, and Regents Park.

Plans are in place for the company to expand to Edens Landing, Bethania, Holmview and Waterford.

"We've been here for more than one and half years. We started in two suburbs, then three - it's very exciting." Mr Suskin said.

The company says more suburbs are to come, and more businesses will soon be on board.

Quieter drones are also part of the plan. Mr Suskin said the new models were half as loud to people on the ground.
