In this research process, a literature study was conducted under the name of innovation, new technology and logistics terms also. A table was created with the subject headings obtained as a result of the literature analysis and new criteria were determined. These criteria are presented to expert opinion. These tables were analyzed with the DEMATEL decision-making method and the effectiveness levels of the criteria were determined. While the most determined criterion was the increase in the market share of the firm also the criterion with the least impact was determined as security problems. Interviews and analyzes have proven that drone technology will have an important place in the logistics industry in the future.
