Drone-Delivery Start-up in Rwanda

Many African countries like Rwanda face daunting logistical issues. Infrastructure networks are frequently in poor condition, while local terrain, with its sizeable lakes, rivers, forests and mountains, also presents severe obstacles. Transportation accidents are the third highest cause of death on the continent.

In the face of these challenges, Rwanda is looking to the skies for solutions. The country is now using Zipline, a drone delivery service, to convey medical supplies to remote areas.

Our sister publication, DirectIndustry e-magazine, visited one of Ziplines’s bases, located one hour away from the capital city Kigali.
