Wingcopter has received a strategic investment from Expa, a worldwide network of startup entrepreneurs managed by Uber co-founder Garret Camp.
With more money going into drone delivery, companies like Wingcopter in Germany are creating and operating drone delivery infrastructure as a service in addition to developing and manufacturing autonomous delivery drones. According to a press release, “the sky is Wingcopter’s highway,” and that’s exactly what it is.
Wingcopter, a drone delivery company, is a “category champion” backed by Expa. eVTOL is made possible by the unique tilt-rotor technology of Wingcopter, while efficient forward flight over long distances is made possible by the fixed-wing design of the craft. Company collaborations have allowed them to distribute products all across the world, and Camp believes that Wingcopter will have a significant impact on global logistics.
“Like Uber, Wingcopter is revolutionizing the way products are transported, including critically needed medication and medical supplies, groceries, or freshly made meals, and even has the potential to automate e-commerce. We’re approaching a tipping point in consumer acceptance and industry regulation thanks to the global pandemic’s tailwinds. Wingcopter, with its cutting-edge delivery drone, software, and services, is well-positioned to take advantage of this momentum,” said Garrett Camp, Founder of Expa. “Wingcopter will have a deep influence on supply chain transformation, logistics, and on-demand delivery given the team’s track record and strong technological stack.”
