DroneMDsm (Medical Delivery) Service
CityDroneZ has a Service Mark Application pending with the US Patent & Trademark Office for DroneMDsm (Medical Delivery).
CityDroneZ is now actively engaged with potential partners in Westchester County now delivering “droneable medical materials” defined as those items weighing 5 pounds or less including Artificial External Defibrillators (AEDs), durable medical equipment (i.e. first aid supplies, small orthotics), medicines, pharmaceuticals for consumers, vaccines, blood, urine, drug testing kits, chemotherapy formulations, medical instruments, documents, etal.
We are asking our potential partners to both provide venture capital funding and contracts for pre-stipulated number of deliveries at costs 50 to 80% lower than their legacy costs.
In the last 3 years, there have been dozens of medical delivery operations by drones across the United States but virtually none of these are Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) which is critical to achieve the lowest possible price for drone deliveries.
The McKinsey Center for Future Mobility produced a research article in January 2023 estimating that drone delivery costs could be as low as $1.50 to $2 per package. Some food delivery services by bicycle or car now charge as much as $8 per package.
Walmart now has Line of Sight or Extended Line of Sight drone delivery operations now underway or planned in 10-12 states at a cost of $4.99 per delivery. Again, these drone delivery operations are NOT BVLOS so Walmart is likely subsidizing the fully loaded cost.
Our early research on the Total Addressable Market (TAM) for Droneable medical deliveries is over 3 million packages annually for Westchester County. We believe that TOTAL Droneable non-medical delivery packages including Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) food deliveries is over 30 million packages.
