“At its core Fetchr is a technology company, and this partnership represents a significant milestone for us as we work towards achieving Fetchr’s vision of enabling all deliveries through technology and disrupting the last mile delivery industry. These autonomous drones from Skycart will help us beat typical last mile challenges, and enhance the delivery experience of our customer while they are on the go,” said Idriss Al Rifai, Founder and CEO of Fetchr. “We are committed to collaborating with the concerned authorities in the UAE and become part of the country’s endeavours to be at the forefront of global innovation and implementation of such advanced technologies,” he added.
