Ecom Express Limited, a technology-driven logistics solutions provider, and Skye Air, a specialist in drone technology, have announced a strategic partnership aimed at transforming last-mile delivery solutions. This collaboration seeks to leverage Ecom Express’ extensive network and automation capabilities with Skye Air’s advanced drone delivery technology.

Both companies are committed to innovation and customer satisfaction, with a focus on enhancing delivery speed, improving efficiency, and reducing carbon emissions. Research indicates that drone-based deliveries can reduce carbon emissions by 93% compared to traditional road parcel deliveries, significantly benefiting environmental sustainability. This partnership addresses the dual challenges of traffic congestion and environmental impact.

This collaboration will not only amplify our efforts in reducing delivery times for e-commerce parcels but also enable sustainability efforts beyond electrification of last-mile vehicles.”

The initiative will begin with drone delivery trials in select locations in Gurugram, with plans to expand to additional pin codes in more remote and challenging terrains across India.
