Maqta Gateway, Abu Dhabi, UAE, the digital arm of AD Ports Group; Emirates Post Group, the official postal operator for the UAE; and SkyGo, an aerial logistics provider, are set to trial a new initiative that would provide a comprehensive aerial drone delivery & other services in Abu Dhabi.
In a statement on its website Maqta Gateway says “The three organisations will collaborate on a trial programme that will deploy aerial drones to carry parcels and documents to specified Emirates Post sites across the emirate of Abu Dhabi. Beginning with short-range journeys, the programme will expand to long-range tests with an increased capacity to assess demand and understand the wider benefits.
“The objective is to provide a sustainable, user-friendly service that can carry vital medical supplies, fresh foods, and urgent documents rapidly, while providing real-time tracking.
“Maqta Gateway will deploy its integrated digital marketplace, Margo, to facilitate online transactions between customers and Emirates Post Group, which in turn will manage the service and provide tracking and status updates, while SkyGo provides the drone solutions.
“Details of the trial programme will be released towards the end of 2022, with a full commercial offering planned for launch in the next”
