DHL, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and drone manufacturer Wingcopter complete successful pilot project
More than 180 take-offs and landings, over 2,200 km flown and roughly 2,000 flight minutes recorded

Revolutionising the delivery of medicines to remote areas using drones - the pilot project Deliver Future proves that it's not science fiction. Three experts in their respective fields are making it happen: DHL, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the German drone manufacturer Wingcopter. Over a six-month period, they successfully tested the delivery of medicines using a drone to an island in Lake Victoria. During the trials, the autonomous DHL Parcelcopter 4.0 completed the 60 km flight from the mainland to the island in 40 minutes on average. A total of 2,200 km were flown and roughly 2,000 flight minutes recorded during the pilot project.
