Drone Delivery Canada Opens New Commercial Operations Center in Vaughan, Ontario

Drone Delivery Canada is pleased to announce completion of DDC’s new commercial operations center, the first of its kind globally, located in Vaughan, Ontario which is now open and ready for operations. 

The state-of-the-art operations center is a 16,000 square foot facility and when at full capacity will be capable of managing 1,500 drones on behalf of commercial paying customers globally.  With the operations center complete, in partnership with Air Canada, DDC anticipates announcing its first paying customer, a large multi-national corporation, imminently. 

“Our operations center is the first of its kind globally and will be scalable to 1,500 drones and routes” commented Michael Zahra, President and CEO of DDC.  “On average, we anticipate charging customers a licensing fee of $10,000 per drone, per route, per month. With the high level of technical automation we have achieved with our drones, our patented FLYTE system and the operations center, we will lower operating costs, resulting in a high-margin business with predictable monthly re-occurring revenue.”
