Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) is poised to rapidly expand its commercial drone delivery business, according to the company.
“It’s our intention to have a market penetration of (serving) 200 communities over the next five years,” according to a video interview with Michael Zahra, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Operations, posted on the company’s website.
This will build on the current C$2.5 million-a-year contract (https://www.unmannedairspace.info/uncategorized/delivery-by-drone-service-launched-in-northern-ontario-canada/) the company currently has to supply the Moose Cree First Nation with goods and services.
DDC “will also be immediately pursuing eight additional business verticals where the Company sees great growth opportunities,” says a company press release. “In 2019, DDC will also be actively pursuing opportunities in eight other additional verticals that include Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, Oil & Gas, Mining, Agriculture, Forestry, Construction and Courier Companies.
“The opportunities in front of us are not only with the many Canadian First Nations & Inuit remote communities, but also with a broad range of government, commercial and industrial applications globally. We are also seeing an increase in traction with our international customers globally as our drone delivery system continues to be validated globally. Our proven system is seen as a commercially viable delivery infrastructure solution to companies looking to reduce costs and dramatically improve logistics.” said Michael Zahra.
