Last-mile delivery is transforming from its analogue
state into the digital, autonomous world

Retailers, healthcare providers and logistics companies lose time and money to the long-standing problems of ‘last mile’ logistics. Current challenges cost the eCommerce sector billions of dollars a year, delay emergency healthcare and interrupt mission-critical supplies. Our low carbon, automated drone delivery networks protect health whilst saving significant time and cost for retailers and industry.

Unlock the potential
of drone delivery

Drone technology has evolved rapidly but many efforts remain siloed. IDU is a delivery integrator working closely with government, industry and academia to provide harmonised last mile solutions. Our mission is to make drone delivery accessible to all.

In research and development, IDU is engaged in several partnerships with mainstream universities and logistics companies. By sharing key insights and findings with the wider drone delivery industry, we continue to innovate and drive progress.
