How It Works and Pricing
It is well known that remote and isolated territories experience many issues when it comes to last mile deliveries. We have a solution: We use 180 kg capacity drones that can fly over a 200-kilometer distance.
The way the service works is simple: Drop your parcel off at one of our service points and the next day it will reach its destination. Our first target territories are the villages on the Lower North Shore.

Tips on Preparing Your Parcel
Simply enter the dimensions (length, width, height) and the exact parcel weight and the calculator does the rest.
Maximum dimensions are 40 inches x 30 inches x 24 inches and the maximum weight is 400 pounds or 180 kg.
A parcel with following weight and dimensions:
- Weight: 15 pounds
- Height: 12 inches
- Width: 12 inches
- Length: 18 inches
- 12 inches x 12 inches x 18 inches = 2,592 cubic inches
- 2,592 cubic inches / 1,728 = 1.5 cubic feet
- 1.5 cubic feet x 31.22 lbs/cubic feet = 46.83 pounds
Because the parcel’s actual weight (15 pounds) is lower than the calculated weight versus its volume (46.83 pounds), the price applies to 46.83 pounds.
46.83 pounds x $1/pound = $46.83 (plus taxes)
A parcel with the following weight and dimensions:
- Weight: 6.8 kg
- Height: 30.48 cm
- Width: 30.48 cm
- Length: 45.72 cm
- 30.48 cm x 30.48 cm x 45.72 cm = 42,475.27 cubic centimeters
- 42,485.27 cubic cm / 1,000,000 = 0.042475 cubic meter
- 0.042475 cubic meter x 500 kg/cubic meter = 21.23 kg
Because the parcel’s actual weight (6.8 kg) is lower than the calculated weight versus its volume (21.23 kg), the price applies to 21.23 kg.
21.2375 kg x $2.205$/kg = $46.83 (plus taxes)
