Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. announced the release of AnyMile, a drone-based logistics operations management platform designed to enable enterprises and fleet operators to schedule and manage cargo deliveries using drones over lengthy distances of up to several hundred miles.
To provide an end-to-end resource planning and management system, the platform is designed to enable operation across all known kinds of drones – multi-rotor, fixed-wing, single-rotor, or fixed-wing hybrid VTOL. Drones are predicted to significantly cut asset transfer time for corporate shippers and logistics firms, allowing just-in-time inventories. AnyMile will collaborate with last-mile delivery providers to provide a door-to-door infrastructure solution for industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, and oil and gas.
“The inclusion of AnyMile to Mitsubishi Electric’s product portfolio supports the company’s long-term objective of digitally transforming our society,” said Zafer Sahinoglu, vice president and general manager of Mitsubishi Electric Innovation Center (MELIC). “Access to cargo, fleet, and service management apps would assist drone owners, corporate shippers, and transportation and logistics organisations, enabling for faster and more convenient deliveries.”
According to GlobalMarkets.com, drone utilisation in the transportation, logistics, and supply chain industries is predicted to expand at a CAGR of 55% by 2030. Since 2020, the United States has already spent $9 billion in the drone sector to meet rising demand for efficient product delivery and to create carbon neutrality.
The AnyMile platform is expected to allow businesses to seamlessly manage their shipments, drone fleets, and infrastructure services, such as scheduling cargo pickup at a specific location, tracking delivery to multiple destinations, managing drone maintenance tasks, live situational awareness, and performing routine operational tasks such as generating customer invoices, booking drone services such as refuelling, and much more.
The primary functionalities of the AnyMile drone logistics management platform are expected to be available for beta testing in summer 2023.
