Partnerships being struck with communities, companies
Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) is attracting some enthusiastic buzz around its proprietary drone delivery platform, which is currently testing the benefits of its system in transporting goods to Canada’s remote communities.
But the attention wasn’t always friendly.
“When we came up with this concept back in 2013, people thought we were, literally, nuts; we were crazy,” said Tony Di Benedetto, CEO of the Toronto-based company. “They said it’ll never happen.”
Four years later, the company has private partnerships in place, commercial testing is set for the second quarter of 2018, and no one is calling them crazy anymore.
