ADW 2024: Hamburg, Rotterdam and Antwerp ports to cooperate on drone programmes

By Philip Butterworth-Hayes

Amsterdam Drone Week has hosted the first meeting of representatives of the ports of Hamburg, Rotterdam and Antwerp involved in the development of complex drone operations at their ports.

All three ports have developed ecosystems, including UTM systems, in which several drone operating companies are engaged in increasingly complex missions, including the first beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations.

While there are long standing high level cooperative agreements between them, this is the first time the drone operating teams have decided to work together. Areas of cooperation will include sharing experiences and best practices and, potentially, the development of joint programmes.
