Drone delivery operations through partnership
With this partnership Wingcopter, UAV LATAM and UAV Del Peru will be leading the drone delivery space in Peru.
“Currently, several Latin American Countries have partially deficient infrastructure, especially in the health sector, affecting billions of lives, a situation that has been aggravated by COVID-19,” said Juan Bergelund, CEO of UAV LATAM. “At UAV LATAM, we are convinced that with the deployment of Wingcopter drones in Latin America, we can actively support Wingcopter’s vision of creating efficient and sustainable drone delivery solutions that improve and save lives everywhere.”
The fixed-wing Wingcopter 198 drones will be used to deliver medical products to remote communities in the Peruvian Andes. The drone delivery service may be expanded to other countries in the region.
UAV LATAM Will be one of the first companies in Latin America to start using drone delivery technology for both commercial and humanitarian missions.
“By collaborating with UAV LATAM we leverage another great partnership to accelerate our expansion to Latin America. Our goal is to be present on all continents, through our network of Authorized Wingcopter Partners or through own drone-as-a-service operations, and we are on a good track to reach this goal soon,” said Tom Plümmer, CEO of Wingcopter. “We can’t wait to announce more partnerships and own operations in other parts of the world to further increase our global reach and commercial traction.”
UAV del Perú is part of Peru Flying Labs, a member of the international Flying Labs Network that was initiated by WeRobotics to strengthen local expertise in the use of drones, robotics, data and AI for positive social change and create new job opportunities in more than 30 countries around the world. Wingcopter had joined the Flying Labs Network in early 2021 as a Technology Partner.
