Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) and Toyota Tshusho Canada (TTCI) have signed an agreement to partner on a drone delivery logistics platform.

As part of the agreement, TTCI will take part in DDC’s commercial pilot program in Canada. Later, both companies will collectively begin testing flights and identifying other international markets to bring DDC’s proprietary drone delivery platform to.

“This agreement with TTCI is expected to open international markets for us as a company,” said Tony Di Benedetto, CEO of Drone Delivery Canada, in a press statement. “Working alongside a global industrial leader such as Toyota Tsusho also provides us quick access to a very extensive international global network and a breadth of commercial skills.”

“We are confident drone delivery services are the way of the future. This agreement with DDC will enable us to participate in this cutting edge technology,” said Hidetoshi Tada, president of TTCI.
