SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Feb. 9, 2017 -- Skycart, Inc., developer of the world’s first fully automated drone delivery service, has been named a finalist and will compete in the UAE Drones for Good international competition. Scheduled for Feb. 16-18, 2017, in Dubai Internet City, 10 contestants from all parts of the world will compete for the US$1 million prize, the largest award of its kind.
“We’re excited to compete in Drones for Good and look forward to demonstrating Skycart’s unique capabilities,” said Lukas Wrede, Skycart CEO. “We are revolutionizing the way physical goods are shipped with our drone delivery service that will help medical services, couriers, retailers and other businesses reduce shipping costs, optimize delivery times and operate 24/7.”
With its self-flying delivery drones, Skycart addresses a US$120B global market for last mile logistics, the final leg of the supply chain which is typically the most expensive and least efficient. Its state-of- the-art transportation system combines drone hardware, software, a mobile application and cloud technology to offer faster, reliable and cost-efficient delivery. Autonomous from pickup to delivery, Skycart is designed to scale from a single drone to thousands of drones for network operations.
