To expand into the e-commerce market for small and medium-sized businesses, US delivery drone technology company Flirtey has announced that it has completed the technology required to certify and expand its production for last mile delivery.
The Flirtey technology in question includes the Flirtey Eagle, a last-mile delivery drone; the Flirtey Portal, a take-off and landing place for shop windows; as well as the autonomous software required to enable autonomous flight operations.
According to the company, its drones will achieve faster, cheaper, and more convenient delivery. They will also take vehicles off the road, helping to deal with congestion and pollution problems, as well as increasing the safety of the transport system. Ultimately, the goal is for small and large businesses to operate their own final logistic networks for business-to-home delivery.
“Flirtey is certifying and expanding US production of delivery drones to meet growing demand. Flirtey’s technology enables companies to run their own logistics by offering shop-to-door drone deliveries to customers. Companies that use Flirtey’s world-class technology for last mile delivery of drones are pioneering the way to lower delivery costs and billions of potential new revenue. Flirtey is now taking pre-orders for drone delivery systems, ”said Matthew Sweeny, founder and CEO of Flirtey.
Flirtey is currently working on the FAA certification process and is scaling its activities in New Zealand, where it already has regulatory approval. Finally, the drone delivery company is expanding its U.S. drone production to meet demand.
