Aerodyne Group, a drone-based enterprise solutions provider headquartered in Malaysia, has signed an agreement with Singapore-based air mobility company DroneDash Technologies to introduce cross-border drone delivery services between the two countries.

This aims to boost logistics efficiency between the two countries and advance the region’s delivery and supply chain capabilities.

The two firms will work to obtain all necessary permits to commence shore-to-shore drone operations along the Malaysia-Singapore corridor.

Central to the operation is a cutting-edge navigation system crafted from satellite communications with expansive dual-city 5G roaming to ensure drones safely navigate through congested maritime and aerial paths.

The service is designed for critical deliveries such as urgent documents, high-value electronics, medical supplies, and perishable foods. The features include real-time tracking, advanced security protocols, and blockchain technology for logistical oversight.

The drones can carry up to 30 kilograms and achieve 150 km/h speeds within a four-hour flight.

The initiative will initially focus on establishing delivery routes to Johor Bahru and Iskandar Malaysia, which were strategically chosen for their proximity to Singapore. This phase sets the foundation for future expansion throughout Malaysia, with commercial operations anticipated to start in Q3 2024.

“Organisations in the logistics, cargo delivery and freight services sector stand to gain a double-digit percentage improvement in overall productivity and cost. Drone deliveries are also beneficial for the environment with emissions and carbon footprint being reduced by up to 100 per cent and 80 per cent, respectively,” said Paul Yam, CEO of DroneDash.
