Pharmaniaga to explore drone usage

KUALA LUMPUR: Pharmaniaga Bhd is exploring the use of unmanned aerial vehicles or drones for pharmaceutical-grade medical delivery to enhance its logistics capabilities and make healthcare services more accessible, especially to remote and geographically challenging areas.

In a statement yesterday, the company said the initiative aimed to reduce delivery time and cost as well as increase supply chain efficiencies as drone delivery is estimated to be five times more efficient than conventional delivery methods.

It said the first phase of the proof of concept of the project, code-named Project Eagle, has successfully taken place recently in Pulau Pangkor, Perak. — Bernama
