Drone Delivery Canada has announced that with the assistance of its sales agent Air Canada Cargo, it has entered into a commercial agreement with Vision Profile Extrusions.
The aim of the partnership is to deploy a drone delivery platform for the use of Vision between its properties in Vaughan, Ontario.
Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, DDC will deploy its DroneSpot takeoff and landing zones as well as additional drone flight infrastructure on the Vision sites, and deploy its Sparrow cargo drone, with a capacity of up to 10lbs, on defined flight routes between Vision’s properties in Vaughan, Ontario, on routes approved by Transport Canada.
Flights will be remotely monitored by DDC from its new commercial operations centre also located in Vaughan.
DDC says it expects to begin providing drone delivery services under the Agreement in Q4, after deployment of the client site infrastructure is completed.
Michael Zahra, president and CEO of DDC, said: “We are pleased to be working with Vision Profile Extrusions Limited and our sales agent Air Canada Cargo to roll out our first paid commercial project using our proven Sparrow drone, patented FLYTE system, and newly built commercial operations centre.”
He continued: “Our focus is to commercialize our industry-leading solution. We are pleased to see the first green shoots of our plans realized and drive revenue for our shareholders. We have a robust funnel of opportunities and we expect this will be the first of many to come globally. I would like to thank our employees and partners whose dedication has allowed us to achieve this first, albeit important milestone.”
