Drone Delivery Canada partners with TECSYS to develop UAS delivery system
After signing a commercial agreement, Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) and TECSYS Inc. will work on designing, developing and implementing a UAS delivery system, in an effort to “expand the logistics capabilities of TECSYS specifically in the healthcare vertical.” TECSYS Inc. provides supply chain systems for health systems and hospitals.
“Working with TECSYS, we see great opportunities to serve the healthcare sector across North America,” says Tony Di Benedetto, CEO of Drone Delivery Canada.
“We’re aware of many opportunities to improve rural healthcare by using drones and by working with TECSYS, an innovation leader in the field, we will develop healthcare solutions.”
The development, prototyping and testing of the system will utilize DDC's logistics platform, and will focus on a personalized Depot to Depot system, as well as a Depot to Consumer system, on the healthcare supply chain vertical.
The two entities say that if testing and development are successful to their satisfaction, that they agree to proceed in “good faith negotiations and delivery of the definitive commercial agreement once finalized government legislation is enacted,” which is estimated to occur in Q4 2017.
DDC will be responsible for its own costs and expenses in regards to the testing and development of the UAS delivery logistics platform system.
