DRONEDEK, known for its “mailbox of the future,” is working with Alpine 4 Holdings subsidiary Vayu Aerospace Corporation (Vayu) to create a new last-mile ecosystem in drone package delivery.
DRONEDEK presented its smart mailbox at Purdue@Westgate’s Autonomous Day 2.0. earlier in the month where Vayu’s US-1 successfully delivered to DRONEDEK’s smart mailbox, which is designed with exceptional versatility allowing for packages and letters from all types of autonomous service providers, in addition to traditional delivery.
DRONEDEK CEO, Dan O’Toole, expects to garner additional partnerships of this kind due to the nature and flexibility of his product and expected marketplace growth. Fortune Business Insights estimates the overall drone package delivery space to be worth $51 billion by 2028.
“Vayu Aerospace and Alpine 4 have both earned a reputation as innovative leaders in the drone delivery and manufacturing markets,” O’Toole said. “We’re learning from one another on how to help deliver a faster, safer, and more secure drone delivery experience for everyone.”
Kent Wilson, CEO of Alpine 4 Holdings commented, “We are excited to partner with Dan and his team. The future of autonomous freight delivery begins with innovative companies like DRONEDEK. The combination of DRONEDEK, Vayu Aerospace and our fleet of cutting-edge airframes, avionics hardware, and autonomous flight software, makes our partnership more than just a win-win for both companies. It’s a transformative product offering that will be hard to match in the global market space.”
About DRONEDEK: DRONEDEK is one of the first companies in the world to focus on package security for traditional and autonomous delivery methods. Designed to accept drone delivery, the DRONEDEK mailbox also accepts traditional mail delivery, and is destined to become an everyday utility service like power or water. The device will keep packages hot or cold; will alert users to package arrival; recharge drones; and even serve as an emergency alert if need be. An app controls when the device is opened for delivery and retrieval and its emergency alarm features. See the mailbox and learn more at www.dronedek.com
