Mumba-based Jeena & Co has provided on-ground logistics support to TechEagle in the successful completion of Asia’s first drone-based vaccine delivery project in a complete cold chain environment for the  Telangana government.

During the project, Gurugram-based TechEagle’s Drone delivered vaccines in a temperature-controlled box weighing 2.5kg for an aerial distance of 11.5km. The drone maintained 2.4 degree celsius throughout the flight.

Vikram Singh Meena, Founder and CEO, TechEagle Innovations said, “We have already completed Asia’s first drone-based vaccine delivery as part of the Medicine from the Sky project by Telangana Government,  World Economic Forum, NITI Aayog & Apollo Hospitals. We look forward to transforming the last and mid mile supply chain with our indigenous Drone technology and Jeena’s 100+ years of domain expertise.”

Cyrus Katagra, Director, Jeena & Co, added, “Deploying drones can reduce the delivery time for a two-hour road journey, to a mere 15-20 mins flight time. With TechEagle as our drone delivery partner, we aim to expand our drone-based service offerings to our existing and potential clients across retail, manufacturing, F&B as well as healthcare and pharma."
