TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 29, 2024 / Volatus Aerospace Corp. (TSXV:VOL)(OTCQB:VLTTF) ("Volatus" or "the Company") announces a collaboration with Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. to use their AnyMile™ drone-based, logistics operations management platform to provide end-to-end logistics management to scale. Later this year, the two companies will work together on a funded trial to provide logistics and deliveries to offshore oil rigs. Subject to the closing of Volatus' previously announced merger of equals with Drone Delivery Canada (DDC), the collaboration anticipates using the DDC Canary aircraft flown from their operational control centre (OCC).

In the emerging drone delivery market, there has been a lot of attention on the drone and regulations. However, to scale, there needs to be an intuitive system for customers to manage their package delivery from origin to destination-the AnyMile platform addresses this need and enables package delivery logistics management at scale.

"Volatus sees this collaboration as an opportunity to enhance our customer logistics experience, enabling them to scale seamlessly," said Glen Lynch, CEO of Volatus Aerospace. "Drone delivery needs to be convenient, scalable, and beneficial for adoption. It should be as simple as coordinating package delivery with any of today's major carriers. This is why we are collaborating with Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. to use their AnyMile platform."

"The AnyMile platform provides an end-to-end, trustworthy system to manage the cargo delivery operations of Volatus. From start to finish, we enable customers to track and monitor their shipments reliably, no matter how complex," said Zafer Sahinoglu, Ph.D., VP of Innovation for Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. "We are excited to collaborate with Volatus to bring innovation and solve problems."
