5:30 PM Extending the Cold Chain with Automated Drone Delivery: A Real Life Operating Case Study

The infrastructure and transportation technologies of the last century failed to enable universal access to healthcare. Automated drone delivery has the potential to affordably provide every human on Earth with instant access to vital medical products. Zipline is an automated logistics company that is working to build this future.

Zipline already operates the largest automated logistics network in the world, providing over 11,000,000 people with instant access to hundreds of medical products by drone. Zipline routinely delivers chilled, frozen, and deep-frozen products, such as antivenom, blood products, insulin, laboratory reagents, and vaccines. Instant delivery by drone enables a new just-in-time supply model that improves supply chain efficiency and reduces medical product waste. Find out how Zipline’s drones fly over 25,000 miles every week through wind and rain to make lifesaving deliveries.
