Drone Delivery Canada Corp gives update on DSV project

By Rachelle Harry

Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) Corp has provided an update to its commercially operational project with DSV.

In October, DDC first announced the commercial agreement, which involves it providing DSV with its drone delivery platform with the first paid route at the DSV head office in Milton, Ontario.

DDC then reported in March that revenue generation and commercial operations are active, pursuant to the terms of the agreement.

To date, hundreds of successful flights have been conducted. DCC said that “after a brief successful implementation of the solution, the system has been flying approximately 400 flights per month, all within expectations”.

Looking forward, DCC expects multiple inbound/outbound commercial routes for use by DSV’s customers with time-sensitive cargo.

Discussions are also underway with numerous prospective companies for subsequent routes.

Customers pay DDC a monthly fee for each deployed drone route, pursuant to the terms of their respective agreements.
