Whether goods are being delivered by ground transportation, through the air, or a multi-modal approach, it’s important to understand the possibilities that remotely operated and autonomous vehicles can bring to the cargo and delivery industries. This workshop will feature organizations partnering to make this future a reality.

10:30 – 11:15: Reality, Not Science Fiction; Drones Deliver Today

For nearly a decade the promise of drone delivery has been considered. In 2015, Zipline and partners in Rwanda created what would become the first nationally scaled drone delivery network in the world. Today, myriad companies and governments are setting up logistics systems that take advantage of low weight, high value delivery through autonomous sky operations. 

This panel explores the lessons learned from real drone delivery operations and proposes what it will take to open the Sky with AI. 

11:15 – 12:00: The Future of Flight: Taking Autonomous Planes from Trial to Cargo Panel

The aviation industry doesn't have enough pilots to meet demand, causing widespread supply chain disruptions and forcing logistics companies to rely on vehicle transportation for deliveries. These issues are further amplified in remote and hard-to-reach locations, which are left out of metropolitan delivery hubs despite 90% of the U.S. population living within 15 miles of one of the country's 5,050 small and underutilized regional airports. Despite these issues, automation can help. After decades of testing and development, autonomous planes are finally on their way to air cargo operations. Promising to connect communities with the supplies they want and need in a more efficient, safe and affordable way, autonomous technology will help ease the pressures of e-commerce demand while revitalizing small communities.

Panelists include Jesse Kallman, VP of Commercialization & Strategy at Xwing, Jeff Luckett, Founding Member and Head of UAS Strategy, RDT&E and Acquisitions at UPS Flight Forward, and Basil Yap, Program lead for North Carolina's participation in the FAA BEYOND Program.

Throughout the session, these industry leaders will provide insight into emerging trends in large cargo UAS, the ways in which autonomy is transforming air cargo accessibility and sustainability, and the changing needs of large global logistics firms.
