In a statement issued on Monday (28 May), Tony Di Benedetto, CEO of Drone Delivery Canada, said: “This agreement with TTCI is expected to open international markets for us as a company.
“Working alongside a global industrial leader such as Toyota Tsusho also provides us quick access to a very extensive international global network and a breadth of commercial skills.”
