DRONE DELIVERY CANADA SIGNS AGREEMENT TO EXPAND DRONE LOGISTICS PLATFORM WITH NAPA AUTO PARTS IN CANADA
Drone Delivery Canada Corp. has entered into a commercial agreement with UAP Inc. (NAPA) -- one of Canada's largest automotive parts companies -- for testing of a drone delivery platform that looks to expand the logistic capabilities of UAP's NAPA Auto Parts delivery activities nationwide.
"We are delighted to be working with NAPA Canada," commented Tony Di Benedetto, chief executive officer of Drone Delivery Canada. "We are the first and only drone delivery company in Canada, and to now be able to work with one of Canada's largest auto parts distributor is a major opportunity for us. We are focusing on many areas which are game changing for us and the automotive industry."
DDC will work directly with NAPA to design, prototype and test a drone delivery solution to expand NAPA's logistics capabilities using Drone Delivery Canada's logistic platform. Development, prototyping and testing initiatives will be focused on a customized solution that includes depot-to-depot and depot-to-consumer solutions.
With this agreement in place, DDC will work under Transport Canada's framework to advance its testing at a specific test site within the Southern Ontario geography, following which DDC anticipates it will travel to Foremost, Alta., and Alma, Que., to test beyond visual line of sight.
