Sweden – We are announcing participation of the drone delivery company Kookiejar of Sweden (KOS) as the latest member to Drone Logistics Ecosystem (DLE). The company is currently involved in several projects in Dubai, Sweden, Maldives and Monaco. Their main focus would be to enable Ground and Air infrastructure together with Independent Business Group’ (IBG) sister company A2M which builds U-space services. Kookiejar chose the above geographies as a launch market developing and validating the crucial elements of the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) eco-system and have long term plans to launch our products and services in USA, China and Brazil which it believes would be the key markets for volume operations.
“Joining DLE would allow us to network and align with like-minded pioneers of this new era of electric aviation fostering a sense of growth and empowerment towards each other. Our focus in the coming three years would be the mantra that the ground and Airspace infrastructure must be ready when the heavy cargo drones and the first few vertical-powered lift vehicles are certified and ready thereby allowing us to reduce the downtime creating mass scale adoption. We have at least 6 pilot projects in the pipeline and 2 roll-outs in Europe. We are preparing for a major announcement for the GCC market in the last quarter of this year, partnering up with supply chain partners and also with key e-VTOL and drone manufacturers allowing us to design our systems and vertiports in conformance to the performance criteria of the eVTOL aircrafts” - Wassaf Mohammed, CTO, Kookiejar of Sweden.
KOOKIEJAR is a Swedish Vertiport as a service (VaaS) provider, aiming at enabling mass scale adoption of Vertical lift vehicles empowering the movement of goods and passengers across regional and urban areas in cities and across the globe. Kookiejar designs and constructs origami inspired Vertiport manufacturing technology bringing in the Swedish inspiration of IKEA with a dash of the Danish Lego flavor. Our scalable modules of Vertiports comes in varying sizes that can be expanded and moved from one place to another like Lego blocks as demand arises and ceases, keeping in mind also the sustainability of the materials and production methods used. Kookiejar also provides Kookiejar network services connecting real estate developers, Airports, retail chain giants, Malls and transport hubs thereby activating the already existing networks commissioning new revenue streams into their already existing business models.
DRONE LOGISTICS ECOSYSTEM
DLE is a global/virtual network of Companies, Universities, the Public/Governments, and Investors operating in the drone logistics industry. The aim of the DLE is to bring together stakeholders to collaborate to stimulate standardization in this rapidly emerging industry. Hence, accelerating cross-border marketing and commercialization of products and services of its members. Since most of the companies in this industry are early-stage start-ups with limited access to funding, manpower and expertise, DLE is the ideal platform for companies to share their expertise to co-develop products and services and/or acquire necessary cross-border market access in partnership with other members.
In the past 2 years, DLE has expanded to include 56 organizations, consisting of 52 companies, 2 universities and world's largest drone association, Japan UAS Industrial Development Association, across 21 different countries. In a short period of time, we have been able to generate several international proof-of-concept projects with a few commercialization prospects in the pipeline. The pandemic has restricted our movement and DLE has been a great tool for our members to streamline communication and product development. We are in the process to create a commercialization model to help our members reach the market faster in partnership with other members.
