Israeli medical delivery and logistics company SAREL has selected Gadfin Aero-Logistics Systems to operate an on-demand drone delivery network that will eventually connect all of the country’s major hospitals. Gadfin will fly medical supplies over a radius of up to 200 km (125 miles) under the long-term exclusive partnership agreement.
The outcome will be one of the first automated, on-demand, medical delivery aerial network. The first operational delivery line will be the longest drone delivery line in the world, stretching up to 100 km radius.
Gadfin uses hydrogen fuel cell technology and a special patented wing folding mechanism to provide long-range services. The project will reach up to 60 deliveries a day (up to 21,000 deliveries a year) within three years from now, using 18 Gadfin Spirit One Air-vehicles, under a service contract with Gadfin.
Avi Buskila, SAREL’s CEO stated: “This partnership we established with Gadfin, utilising breakthrough technology, as part of SAREL’s innovation policy, will allow SAREL to be the first medical logistics company in the world to allow a nationwide, on demand, immediate lifesaving equipment and supply. Regardless of traffic, while reducing Inventory and waste due to expired medical supplies.”
