Ecom Express Initiates Drone Delivery Pilot in Delhi NCR

Ecom Express, based in Delhi NCR and backed by Warburg Pincus, is joining the ranks of Indian logistics companies exploring drone technology for expedited deliveries.

According to Vishwachetan Nadamani, COO of Ecom Express, the startup will commence a drone delivery pilot this week in the Delhi NCR region.

Nadamani explained, “Firstly, the area has to have a decent shipment density, and secondly, the route must fall under Skye Air’s coverage. Whichever shipment they can fly, we will give it to them.” He further expressed optimism, stating, “We are looking forward to a lakh shipments in drone delivery. At that scale, it will have an impact on the cost side, reduce carbon footprint, add a safety net, and beat traffic. This is better than traditional logistics.”

The startup intends to expand the pilot program in a phased approach. Following Delhi, it will be introduced in Bengaluru, followed by parts of Chandigarh.
