Valqari joins the Drones Logistics Ecosystem

Chicago: Valqari is announcing its participation in the Drone Logistics Ecosystem to
address the evolving drone logistics market for urban, rural, 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 collaborating and focusing on innovative solutions such as end-to-end delivery systems, safe and reliable infrastructure for drone delivery, removing risk from drone delivery operations.

VALQARI, CEO & co-founder Mr. Ryan Walsh said “We are excited about the ecosystem they are building for drone delivery. We know Valqari’s drone delivery infrastructure will be a critical piece of that ecosystem and look forward to how we can work with them to achieve an end to end solution for their customers”.

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.

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 achieved to develop 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.
