This initiative was promoted with the help of DDC’s distributor, Air Canada, and was developed in collaboration with DSV’s current logistics partner, McMaster University.
The intended route for this pilot project is between DSV Canada’s headquarters in Milton, Ontario and the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital in Oakville, Ontario. The project will leverage DSV’s existing DroneSpot® takeoff and landing infrastructure while establishing a new infrastructure in the hospital. Operations are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2022 for six months. DSV’s intra-site routes will continue to operate at the same time.
“Healthcare is constantly evolving, and the technologies that support it are evolving,” said Hillary Rodriguez, Performance & CFO and Senior Vice President of Corporate Services at Halton Healthcare.
“As a leader in global logistics, DSV continues to focus on growth and innovation. The Care by Air project is critical to optimizing our time-sensitive and critical care healthcare cargo-dependent supply chain. It’s a step, “said Martin Roos, Managing Director of DSV Air & Sea Inc. in Canada. “The COVID-19 pandemic saw the need to further innovate urgent medical transportation. With new needs, new solutions are created. By partnering as a delivery hub to Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, We are excited to take the next step in drone logistics. We are proud to play an integral role in developing drone delivery routes that benefit the healthcare system and patient care in the Halton region. “
“Drones are a potentially transformative technology for solving the transportation challenges associated with short-lived medical isotope products. McMaster University research scientist Andrea Armstrong said: I am saying.
“The healthcare vertical market is a very interesting area for DDCs, and there are great opportunities for the future in terms of time-critical delivery, high-value, high-risk cargo utilizing our unique turnkey drone delivery solution. “DDC CEO Steve Magirias said. .. “This project is ideal for demonstrating new and efficient ways to transport medical supplies from DSV Milton to Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, and in the future, exploring additional connecting air routes via DSV. You can also.”
