Aerodyne Group and DroneDash Technologies ink first cross-border drone deliveries agreement

(SINGAPORE) Aerodyne Group (Aerodyne), a pioneering global leader in drone-based enterprise solutions based in Malaysia, has officially joined forces with DroneDash Technologies (DroneDash), a prominent air mobility company headquartered in Singapore.


This groundbreaking collaboration is poised to introduce cross-border drone delivery services connecting Malaysia and Singapore, harnessing the cutting-edge technologies of both entities to revolutionise logistics efficiency across the two nations and propel the region's delivery and supply chain capabilities to new heights.


Under the agreement, Aerodyne and DroneDash will navigate the intricate regulatory landscape, securing all requisite permits to pioneer shore-to-shore drone operations along the Malaysia-Singapore corridor.


At the heart of the operation lies a sophisticated navigation system, fuelled by satellite communications with expansive dual-city 5G roaming capabilities, ensuring drones navigate safely through congested maritime and aerial routes, vastly enhancing operational safety and reliability.


The initial phase will focus on establishing delivery routes to Johor Bahru and Iskandar Malaysia, strategically selected for their proximity to Singapore. This pivotal stage lays the groundwork for future expansion throughout Malaysia, with commercial operations slated to commence in the third quarter of 2024.


The deployment of drones capable of carrying payloads of up to 30 kilograms and achieving 150 km/h speeds within a four-hour flight window promises swift and secure deliveries.


"Enterprises in the logistics, cargo delivery, and freight services sectors stand to gain a significant double-digit increase in overall productivity and cost savings. Drone deliveries also yield environmental benefits, with emissions and carbon footprint reduced by up to 100 per cent and 80 per cent, respectively," remarked Paul Yam, CEO of DroneDash.


"Drone deliveries are reshaping the speed and reach of logistics operations, enabling access to remote areas beyond the reach of traditional air and sea freight. They also contribute to revitalising the logistics sector by generating employment opportunities in drone operation and maintenance."


"With the recent establishment of the Johor-Singapore Special Economic Zone (JS-SEZ), we take pride in playing a pivotal role in strengthening economic connectivity between the two regions," stated Mudzakkir Hatta, CEO of Aerodyne (Malaysia). "We eagerly anticipate expanding beyond Johor to other regions of Malaysia, fostering enduring trade cooperation between our two partner nations."


Tailored for critical deliveries such as urgent documents, high-value electronics, medical supplies, and perishable foods, this service is poised to redefine logistics between Malaysia and Singapore. Equipped with real-time tracking, advanced security protocols including 256-bit encryption, and blockchain technology for logistical oversight, this initiative sets a new standard for secure, efficient cross-border logistics.
