First Commercial BVLOS Drone Delivery in Singapore
F-drones has completed the first commercial BVLOS drone delivery in Singapore on 19 April 2020. The drone delivered 2 kg of vitamins over 2.7 km in 7 minutes, to a ship managed by Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS).

EPS, which is one of the world’s largest privately-owned ship managers, is F-drones first paying customer. The deal signed between the two companies is for an initial one-year contract of 200 deliveries.

In Singapore, like in most parts of the world, a BVLOS authorisation or permit is required when operating drones beyond the visual range of drone pilots. Without which, commercial drone delivery services would not be viable.
