Drone Delivery Canada will pursue eight additional business verticals as it moves into commercial operations and revenue generation.
The eight verticals the firm is looking at are healthcare, pharmaceuticals, oil & gas, mining, agriculture, forestry, construction and courier companies.
As part of the move, DDC has released a video focusing on its commercialisation, which highlights the need and opportunity in specified areas.
The video is comprised of a six-minute film with three interviews with Michael Zahra, senior vice-president of operations & strategy, Tim Strauss, vice president of Air Canada Cargo, who sits on the advisory board of DDC along with Deepak Chopra, the former CEO of Canada Post.
Michael Zahra comments: “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.”
Adding: “Our proven system is seen as a commercially viable delivery infrastructure solution to companies looking to reduce costs and dramatically improve logistics.”
