Helsinki: Nordic 247© and Tramigo are announcing their participation in the Drone Logistics Ecosystem to address the evolving drone logistics market for urban, regionally and at sea mid-mile and last mile deliveries. The aim of Drone Logistics is to work on standardization of the drone delivery technologies by working on innovative solutions such as the delivery systems, vertiport universal charging stations, safety, and reliability etc.
Nordic 247, CEO & co-founder Mr Veli Eloranta said “is a company based in Finland, with expertise in high performance and environment-friendly limited space coolers. Cooling capacity is critical for the growth strategy of the drone industry we believe, and we have the know-how to develop this. We are excited to be of part of this virtual drone logistic ecosystem, because we believe there is a great business opportunity.”
One of the problems facing the drone delivery business is the lack of capabilities for operators to send temperature-sensitive material (vaccines, blood plasma, etc). Today they are limited to use dry ice as the cooling medium. AirGo Design and Nordic 247 are developing temperature-controlled lightweight 2.5 L and 9 L DroneFridge cargo boxes with battery capacities of 10 h respective 5 h.
Tramigo’s Partner, CFO & co-founder Mr Patrik Jakas said “Drones being a fast-growing segment with high-value technology and movable goods, Tramigo is committed to helping to monitor and securing both the drones and cargo, and to ensure further reliability of the drone logistics industry. Tramigo’s mission-critical tracking solutions including seamless embedded connectivity with truly global coverage will help ensure that no drones or cargo will go missing.”
The collaboration with Tramigo will ensure that AirGo Design’s smart DroneBoxes stay on the radar and that the valuable cargo is secured from take-off to delivery, irrespective on country of operation and cross-border flights. Operators would benefit from using the light and smart DroneBoxes to track the position of cargos along the transportation route and to collect data in real-time to optimize operating parameters.
The Drone Logistics Ecosystem is an international multidisciplinary virtual network of companies, universities, and government entities working to stimulate collaboration and standardization in the Drone logistics industry. The aim of the Drone Logistics Ecosystem is to bring together these businesses, academics, regulators, and financiers into the same space to stimulate progress and innovation within the drone delivery industry. Many of the companies in the industry are early-stage start-ups with limited access to funding, manpower and expertise, so the Drone Logistics Ecosystem will serve as a sharing-platform for companies to lend their expertise for joint-development of products or for working as consulting or sub-contractors, and for any format of cross-disciplinary/border collaboration.
The benefits of the Drone Logistics Ecosystem include.
· Inclusivity for all players in the industry with an open Drone Logistics Ecosystem.
· Standardization globally to ensure the smooth and efficient movement of goods from the factory to the end customer globally.
· A win-win for all participants in this emerging industry and the delivery and courier industry, and more importantly, the customers.

Freespace Operations is an Australian owned and operated manufacturer, delivering world-leading industrial heavy-lift multirotor drone systems to the defence & commercial sectors. Freespace Operations focuses on small to medium-sized multirotor systems. Their flagship heavy lifter Calisto 50 multirotor drone offers the global best performance and features, allowing up to 25 kg of payload capacity and multirole capabilities. The Callisto core philosophy is modularity with multiple power options available, including high energy density battery and series petrol hybrid systems, quick change payloads, advanced ship-based takeoff and landing marine capability and long-term maintenance while also being ‘Evergreen’, allowing for both hardware and software upgrades along with the full life of the aircraft.
Nordic 247© is an innovation-driven Finnish company with cutting edge miniaturized temperature cooling systems to treat the limited/weak power of the cooling capacity. The treatment of airflow of hot and cold air is the key factor. This is protected with a patent. We have developed a cooler with Peltier elements that have a cooling capacity close enough to basic compressor coolers. State-of-the Peltier coolers could only achieve a temperature difference of 10⁰C from ambient (ambient is +21⁰C). We have broken through this boundary and managed almost to double the temperature difference, achieving an inner cooler temperature of +2,9⁰C! With our technology, we can build coolers with 80% fewer parts – a meaningful environmental impact. All parts are recyclable.
Tramigo Ltd is a Finnish company, and one of the early pioneers in GPS tracking and IoT connectivity with a global presence since 2002.
