Amazon Could Soon Be Delivering Your Drugs Right to Your Front Door

By Shabana Arif on at

If the recent trademark filing is an indication of Amazon's impending plans, it'll be expanding it online pharmaceutical delivery service to the UK.

Amazon bought PillPack - a service that sells prescription drugs online in the US - back in 2018, and changed the name to PillPack by Amazon Pharmacy last year. Now it seems that the company is filing trademarks for 'Amazon Pharmacy' in the UK, Canada, and Australia, indicating that customers in those regions could well be ordering their prescriptions online and having them delivered by Amazon, for the ultimate convenience.

The trademark was filed on January 9 in all three countries, and includes other areas aside from drug delivery, like surgical and medical dental instruments, as well as medical and veterinary preparations. When the service might go live is anyone's guess. Amazon will no doubt need to get its ducks in a row, but it's almost certainly going to want to expand the service to other regions - as the trademarks indicate. Whether it'll come to fruition is another story. [Engadget]
