The 10-year deal will see Air Canada’s cargo division pursue sales of the start-up’s delivery services on tens of thousands of planned routes.
Air Canada Cargo will market DDC’s drone delivery services in Canada, giving the logistics community access to the growing potential of commercial drone deliveries.
“Air Canada is pleased to partner with Drone Delivery Canada, a leading player in today’s emerging drone industry. We believe drone technology has the potential to offer the cargo community cost-effective solutions to complex issues related to supply chain distribution in non-traditional markets, including remote communities in Canada. It is another way Air Canada Cargo is innovating and engaging with new technologies, such as artificial intelligence and digital technologies, which are transforming the cargo landscape,” said Tim Strauss, Vice President of Cargo at Air Canada.
Mr. Strauss is also an independent member of the advisory board of DDC.
