SOURCE: Arabian Business - Fetchr to help deliver UAE's first autonomous drone delivery service
US-based logistics firm Fetchr has joined forces with Eniverse Technologies and Skycart to develop the very first autonomous drone delivery service in the region.
Fetchr said the tie-up with Dubai-based startup development firm Eniverse and San Francisco-based drone delivery firm Skycart will further state-of-the-art geolocation technology to send packages on behalf of its customer base via a new autonomous channel.
Dubai-based Eniverse Technologies teamed up with Skycart, a San Francisco-based drones firm, in July this year to form a JV to produce drones to delivery packages under 5kg across Dubai.
The addition of Fetchr will help take the project 'the last mile', acording to founder and CEO Idriss Al Rifai.
“At its core Fetchr is a technology company, and this partnership represents a significant milestone for us as we work towards achieving Fetchr’s vision of enabling all deliveries through technology and disrupting the last mile delivery industry,” said Idriss Al Rifai, founder and CEO of Fetchr.
