Drone Delivery Canada Corp. announced that with the assistance of its sales agent Air Canada it has executed a non-binding Letter of Intent effective December 9th, 2020, with Overseas Express Consolidators Inc.
Under the terms of the LOI, the parties are cooperating to work towards a binding definitive agreement. The Agreement will set out the terms and conditions respecting the Company’s drone delivery solution using DDC’s Sparrow, Robin XL and Condor drones and the Company’s patented and proprietary FLYTE system, in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. DDC will provide implementation & commissioning of the systems, training, technical support, ongoing managed services and remote monitoring from its Operations Control Centre in Vaughan, Ontario. Anticipated projects on which the parties are focusing are routes for: First Nations communities across Canada, Canadian ports including shore-to-ship applications, and transactional routes connecting various airports in Canada, with potential subsequent expansion to other applications. All operations will be conducted in accordance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations and Transport Canada flight authorizations.
“OEC was the main funder of our currently operating GlobalMedic / Beausoleil First Nation project and we are pleased that they see the value of drone logistics and they are now looking for subsequent projects with DDC. Market response to our solution has been very favourable in Canada and internationally, and we are pleased with our ongoing momentum. OEC’s vision for a very broad range of drone delivery applications fits perfectly with the wide-ranging capabilities and use cases that the DDC solution can deliver,” said Michael Zahra, President & CEO of Drone Delivery Canada.
“The OEC Group continues to explore opportunities to expand drone capabilities to help essential goods reach remote and challenging destinations. Our initiative with the Beausoleil First Nation can be replicated to other remote communities across northern Canada. We also envision other exciting drone applications such as shore to ship and offshore facilities that require emergency tools or medical supplies. Drone technology is ideal to accelerate the transfer of goods in these scenarios. We are just scratching the surface of drone technology and how it will enhance our daily tasks. The future is exciting,” said Landon Bibeau, Chief Marketing Officer, OEC Inc.
