Drone Delivery Canada delivers dangerous goods

Drone Delivery Canada has approved the transportation of dangerous goods within its network for DSV Canada.

Consumer products classed as dangerous goods can now be delivered from the DroneSpots at DSV’s warehouse in Milton, Ontario.

Steve Magirias, CEO of Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) says: “This is another milestone for DDC in terms of it being the first dangerous goods transport by drone in Canada; as part of our efforts to continue moving the drone industry forward, DDC has been working with Canadian regulatory staff to permit the transportation of dangerous goods by remotely piloted aircraft (drone).”

Moving dangerous goods is an essential service for DSV’s customers in the retail and consumer, pharma and healthcare, automotive, chemicals, and oil and gas industries.

Martin Roos, Managing Director of DSV Canada adds: “We are excited about the newly implemented DG drone logistics operations at our head office in Milton, Ontario. It represents continuous innovation in drone delivery and furthers our commitment to leading the next level of logistics. We look forward to integrating this service into our own and our customers' supply chains.”
