Medikabazaar recently launched the pilot drone project in collaboration with Redwing Labs to transport medical supplies and assess the potential of drones as a means of alternative last-mile delivery option, especially for emergency scenarios. The first scheduled test drone delivery took place successfully in Bengaluru.
In Bengaluru, the trial attempted to deliver medical supplies via drone. The used drone has a maximum range of 35 kilometres and can deliver a payload weighing from one kilogram up to 10 kilograms.
The project aims to serve multiple locations across rural, urban and semi-urban cities for medical supplies including the geographies where the time to delivery is significantly higher through conventional modes due to tough terrain. The pilot project aims to create a large-scale impact and commitment to transform healthcare by making it accessible even to the remotest area to cater to emergent situations.
