THE OGM: 30 YEARS IN BUSINESS Edition - Read Now!View Past Issues
Ordering items online has become commonplace. People order everything from prescription drugs to food to collector’s items and everything in between. While the demand is there for goods to be transported to people, several issues are surfacing within the field, including theft, public safety, and environmental damage.
In creating patented, secure smart mailboxes to accept tradition and autonomous delivery, Dronedek is revolutionizing the future of the delivery industry.
“We are the future of how goods are delivered in the final mile, and the future is here. It’s happening now,” says Dan O’Toole, the founder, and chief executive officer of Dronedek. “Customer habits have changed, and we are happy to be there to help meet their needs and address some of the most common problems.”
“Drone delivery has been identified as the faster, cheaper delivery option,” added O’Toole. “We are happy to be leading the way in helping businesses and consumers with their deliveries through drone technology.”
Founded by Dan O’Toole, Dronedek has raised $7.1 million, helping to bring the receptacles to market this year. Dubbed as the “mailbox of the future,” the receptacle will help people send and receive packages securely and safely and provides privacy. The company recently announced it has partnered with Helium to allow for more significant wireless network expansion. Helium hotspots will be put into Dronedeks in areas with limited coverage to help build out the network.
Dronedek is a company offering a new way of sending and receiving packages of up to five pounds each. The device provides a safe, secure method of delivery that keeps the items in a patented receptacle. The receptacle offers complete protection from the weather and would-be thieves. The company was founded by Dan O’Toole, a patent holder, and serial entrepreneur. The company is based in Indianapolis, Indiana. To learn more, visit the site: https://www.Dronedek.com.
