The air taxi pioneer Volocopter and the Deutsche Bahn subsidiary DB Schenker are now working together on the development of a freight drone. In the coming year the commercial proof of the necessity is to be provided.

At DB Schenker, it is assumed that such a drone will allow the supply chains in inner-city areas to be completely reorganized. Volocopter is based in Bruchsal (Germany) and has been on the market for nine years. The first commercial test flights on German soil are to be carried out in Berlin this year. DB Schenker joined as a strategic investor at the beginning of the year. The rail subsidiary considers the use of drones in delivery and transport services to be a promising investment.
