Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) has entered into an agreement with an unidentified Canadian retailer whereby the two organizations will explore a collaboration to introduce drone delivery services within the retailer’s logistics model.
Drone Delivery Canada – a drone technology company based out of Vaughan, Ontario – focuses on the design, development and implementation of a commercial drone logistics platform for retailers, service organizations and government agencies.
The newly signed memorandum of understanding (MOU) sets a framework for DDC’s development testing, focusing on integrating the company’s “depot to depot” program and providing a last-mile solution. The MOU, non-binding at this time, is expected to develop into a definite agreement, says DDC.
The agreement also includes the retailer’s participation in DDC’s “remote and rural Canadian program” to provide “just-in-time goods” to Canada’s remote communities where demand and need are high, according to DDC, which adds that pilot testing will begin this fall.
“We are excited to further our ‘depot to depot’ last-mile solution, also known as the last leg of a products trip, with such a large corporation,” says Tony Di Benedetto, CEO of DDC. “This effort not only provides recognition of our technology but also moves us closer to commercial operations.”
