In an exclusive new VoloDrone video, global logistics service provider, DB Schenker, and Volocopter demonstrate their vision for the VoloDrone, in the logistics supply chain of the future. With the ambition to deliver parcels ranging from urgent medical supplies to retail – no task is too tall of an ask. Delivered with efficiency, emissions-free, and as quiet as a mouse – the VoloDrone, in combination with etrucks and cargo bikes, is a true game changer for the logistics industry, setting the scene for a new era of logistics.
The VoloDrone is a fully electric heavy-lift cargo drone that can transport a 200-kilogram payload up to 40 kilometers, with 18 rotors and motors powering the electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. It took off for the world’s first public test flight in Hamburg, Germany, demonstrating what the supply chain of the future could look like in a three-minute test flight.
