Emirates Post Group (EPG) and Dronamics have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to explore transformative solutions in logistics through advanced cargo drone capabilities in the UAE, says the press release.
The LOI, signed during the official launch of the Smart and Autonomous Vehicles Industry (SAVI) Cluster in Abu Dhabi, marks the beginning of a collaboration to develop cargo drone delivery in the United Arab Emirates. SAVI aims to become a smart and autonomous vehicle hub, attracting relevant OEMs, startups, researchers, and talent.
Under the terms of this LOI, EPG will explore and trial Dronamics’ cargo drone service to enable same-day middle-mile and long-range deliveries. Both organizations will collaborate towards developing a comprehensive cargo drone delivery network in the UAE and GCC. Once successfully piloted, EPG intends to integrate this innovative technology into its logistics network and enable access of the technology to the wider logistics industry. In addition, EPG intends to be a launch partner of the future Dronamics UAE joint venture to support the expansion of their cargo drone operations in the region.
As part of this LoI, Emirates Post Group will enable Dronamics, through its postal and express business managed by Emirates Post, to conduct Proof-of-Concept (POC) flights in the UAE with at least one drone aircraft by 2024. The strategic partnership with Dronamics, with its advanced technologies, will support EPG’s efforts in enabling the overall delivery supply chain of logistics operations in the UAE.
