The VoloDrone is our uncrewed, fully electric utility drone capable of carrying an impressive – and unprecedented – payload. While there are many design overlaps with the VoloCity, we created the VoloDrone to offer heavy-lift services to a slew of industries, and it will be deployed where classic transportation modes reach their limits.
Thanks to its flexible equipment system, the VoloDrone is a powerful tool that can be tailored to numerous purposes. These include:
From retail to spare parts deliveries, the VoloDrone will deliver your package safely, efficiently, and on time. The ideal solution for heavy-duty logistics requirements.
In moments of need, the VoloDrone will be quickly deployed to provide disaster relief, air rescue, or support humanitarian aid efforts.
The VoloDrone will also assist with daily operations, like building sites. Its high payload makes it ideal for tasks in construction, maintenance, and site planning.
Shore to Ship
The VoloDrone will also offer top-class shore-to-ship deliveries, transporting goods like spare parts. This will step up the overall efficiency of the maritime value chain – without any direct emissions whatsoever.
The VoloDrone demonstrator performed its first flight in October 2019. Two years later, it took to the stage at Hamburg’s ITS World Congress 2021 to conduct its first public flight in collaboration with our partner DB Schenker.
