Drone tech startup TSAW Drones, based in New Delhi, has announced a strategic partnership with Kanhaiya Life Care Medicine to initiate a first-of-its-kind B2C medicine drone delivery service in Kolkata. The vision behind the collaboration is to provide swift and efficient delivery of medicines to patients at their doorsteps while also cutting down on the delays caused by road traffic.

The Hind Motor warehouse of Kanhaiya Medical shall avail of the innovative service of drone-assisted parcel pickup to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted transportation process for their vital medical supplies to a diverse range of recipients, including local residents, law enforcement personnel, and loyal patrons. The said parcels shall be conveyed to the Howrah drone hub of TSAW Drones, whereupon the final leg of the journey shall be undertaken by TSAW’s skilled bikers, who shall ensure the seamless delivery of the parcels to their respective destinations.

Arpit Sharma, AVP of TSAW Drones, said “Our pioneering business-to-consumer (B2C) medicine drone delivery service will herald a paradigm shift in the way medical supplies are transported to those requiring them, guaranteeing swifter, more streamlined, and more secure transportation."

 

TSAW’s drone logistics arm DRONECO’s infrastructure has been instrumental in significantly curtailing the average delivery duration for medicine covering a road distance of 17.6 kilometers, which previously entailed an hour of travel time. With the drone-assisted transport covering a distance of 11 kilometers and completing the task within a mere 8 minutes, the startup has demonstrated its prowess in optimising and streamlining logistical processes.
