Blueflite and DroneUp partner for faster last-mile delivery services

Blueflite, a leader in cutting-edge drone technology, announced a partnership with DroneUp, one of America’s autonomous drone delivery companies. The new partnership comes after months of joint collaboration and follows DroneUp’s recent unveiling of its innovative drone autonomous ecosystem. Blueflite’s drones, known for their internal storage and speed, will be used by DroneUp’s delivery system. This ensures fast, safe deliveries within 15 miles of partnered stores. Blueflite, a U.S company, uses American parts to build its drones, as per the press release from Blueflite. “Our alliance with DroneUp heralds a transformative era for last-mile delivery,” says Frank Noppel, CEO, Blueflite. “By pooling our resources and expertise, we’re not just advancing drone delivery technology; we’re making it more accessible and efficient for everyone, setting new industry standards along the way.”
As DroneUp plans a phased rollout of the ecosystem in select markets in 2024, Blueflite aims to deliver solutions that will benefit businesses and consumers worldwide. The DroneUp ecosystem combines automated ground infrastructure, a suite of software operating systems and an autonomous drone platform. “Our selection of Blueflite as a partner was based on their innovation capabilities and technological excellence,” says John Vernon, CTO, DroneUp. “Their vision aligns with ours, and we’re excited about the future of our collaboration, as it strengthens the backbone of our drone autonomous ecosystem.” The partnership comes at a time when drone delivery is on the rise across the United States and retailers, QSRs and C-stores look for innovative ways to put goods in their consumers’ hands at a fraction of the traditional delivery cost, as per the press release.
