Delivery and logistics company GoFor Industries is now working with remotely piloted aircraft developer Aurora Aerial to advance last-mile drone delivery.
The companies aim to provide a new eco-friendly option for businesses “that can radically change and improve delivery speed and experience for their customers,” according to a news release.
The partnership will be piloted in Canada and then expanded into GoFor’s other markets. The UAS deployed will be Transport Canada Part 9 Safe and compliant for operation within controlled airspace in defined areas per local guidelines.
“Our new partnership with Aurora Aerial is the first step toward redefining the traditional logistics industry and aligns with our vision to revolutionize logistics by using innovative technologies to deliver the ultimate customer experience. Drones provide a way to do this, they deliver with reduced shipping times, reduced operational costs and less impact on the environment,” GoFor Industries President and CEO Brad Rollo said, according to the release. “The pandemic has accelerated the need for and adoption of new delivery solutions caused by a huge increase in online buyers and local delivery demand.”
