Do you know how many parcels were delivered last year to people like you or me? UPS alone delivered in 2014 4.6 billion parcels worldwide, imagine how much the total market volume ascends to.
Do you think the current transport model (packages and documents) is efficient and can provide services anywhere or in any circumstance?
Imagine this: What if there is a technology that makes possiblecarrying packages through the air, in less than 1 or 2 hours, and at a fraction of the current cost? Imagine parcel transport with an unprecedented flexibility and adaptability, with minimum energetic cost, and reduced environmental impact.
Based on the data, the technology that we are developing is applicable to most of the current world deliveries, up to 95% of them. Given the scenario where only the 65% of the deliveries were so urgent to use our technology in 2014, UPS would have saved 105 billion USD last year in deliveries. Likewise, there are some services that are currently not possible, like deliveries to remote zones or urgent services under 2 hours (i.e. for medicines).
Our team develops technology of unmanned vehicles for logistics, focusing on those steps where we can add more value on the chain. Currently we are building our second prototype which will demonstrate its inherent better capabilities in comparison with the current Matternet or Amazon technology.
We have gone through a long journey since our beginnings in 2013 designing, developing software, testing, etc. There will be soon news about what we have already done and what we are doing.
In the meantime, if you like this, we need people passionate about our vision. There is so much to do, and so much to improve. Spread the view and inspire the change.
