Cargo drone airline Dronamics has appointed Tim Martin as chief revenue officer and member of the executive team, effective April 1.

Martin brings nearly three decades of senior management experience across global supply chain and logistics sectors, most recently as chief operating officer for Kuoni Tumlare and, formerly, as SVP global sales and marketing, Asia Pacific for DHL Global Forwarding.

His experience in commercial development and strategic sales spans logistics companies including DHL Express, where he held the role of vice president, Global Sales Strategy & Development, DHL Global Forwarding, UPS and TNT.

The appointment comes as the company prepares to commercialise its operations across Europe and expand to other geographies following the completion of its test flight programme. 

“As the world’s first cargo drone airline, our business model is a real differentiator on the market – we sell capacity, not aircraft. Tim’s expertise and insights, as well as his extensive international and cultural background, will be invaluable in helping us execute our commercial strategy as we gear up to roll-out our operations later this year,” said Svilen Rangelov, co-founder and chief executive of Dronamics.

Dronamics is Europe’s first licensed cargo drone airline and IATA’s first strategic partner for drones worldwide. Dronamics is co-funded by the European Union under the European Innovation Council, Europe’s flagship innovation programme.

The company’s flagship Black Swan drone is able to carry 350 kg (770 lb) at a distance of up to 2,500 km (1,550 mi) up to 80% faster, 50% cheaper and with up to 60% lower emissions than alternative modes of transport, including airfreight, said Dronamics.

This enables same-day shipping over very long distances for a variety of industries, including pharma, food, e-commerce and spare parts.
