The young UK company intends to grow the industry for transporting goods and passengers using innovative aerial devices.

DB aims to explore the vast potential that drone technology has for its customers.

The two companies will test the integration of drones into logistics supply chains.

The company was founded in 2017 in London, where it develops and operates landing sites for aircraft.

Additionally, Skyports' services touch on all aspects of innovative air transport, including arranging charging infrastructure and passenger handling as well as advising on legal and safety issues.

DB will conduct a joint pilot project with Skyports to test the use of drones in a logistics supply chain for the first time.

The project aims to make cargo transport faster, more flexible and more efficient.
