SF Express granted drone operator licence in China

SF Express has been granted a domestic drone operator’s licence by China’s civil aviation authority, the CAAC.

According to sources, the licence has been officially granted to SF’s subsidiary Jiangxi Fengyu Shuntu.

The licence will entitle the company to operate drones in CAAC’s designated pilot zones.

SF Express was quoted as saying: “This means that China’s drone logistics distribution is entering the legal operation phase. It is a milestone in the development of China’s logistics drones and it is also a recognition of SF’s logistics distribution and operation capabilities.

“SF Express will use aviation drones to connect aviation logistics networks through our three-stage air transport network.

“This consists of aircraft, large-scale drones and final-mile drones, which will allow us to achieve 36-hour access nationwide.”
