Ecom Express and Skye Air Join Forces to Transform Last-Mile Delivery

Ecom Express Limited has forged a strategic partnership with Skye Air, a specialist in drone technology, marking a significant leap forward in the logistics industry. This collaboration combines Ecom Express’ vast network and automation expertise with Skye Air’s state-of-the-art drone delivery systems.

With a shared vision for innovation and enhanced customer satisfaction, the partnership aims to dramatically increase delivery speed, improve efficiency, and substantially reduce carbon emissions. Research suggests that switching to drone-based deliveries could cut carbon emissions by up to 93% compared to traditional road parcel deliveries, significantly contributing to environmental sustainability. This initiative addresses the dual challenges of traffic congestion and environmental impact.

“By leveraging Skye Air’s expertise in drone technology, we are excited to explore new opportunities to enhance our delivery services. 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,” said Vishwachetan Nadamani, COO of Ecom Express.

The partnership will initially focus on drone delivery trials in select locations in Gurugram, with plans to expand to additional pin codes in remote and challenging terrains across India in subsequent phases.

“We are thrilled to partner with Ecom Express to integrate drone delivery technology into their last-mile delivery ecosystem. By harnessing the power of drones, we are not just delivering parcels; we are revolutionizing the delivery landscape with a focus on efficiency and sustainability. Leveraging our state-of-the-art tech stack and infrastructure, including Skye Pod and Skye UTM, we aim to enable faster, safer, and more efficient deliveries. Together, we are paving the way for faster and sustainable deliveries, providing an unmatched delivery experience,” added Ankit Kumar, Founder & CEO of Skye Air.

This partnership represents a bold step toward the future of logistics, combining technology and environmental stewardship to transform the delivery landscape in India.
