Prepared to elevate drone delivery operations to new heights, Brazilian drone logistics startup Speedbird Aero has successfully secured a $2 million funding round led by MSW Capital. This investment aims to unlock the sky's potential for faster drone delivery services.
Established in 2018 by Samuel Salomão and Manoel Coelho, Speedbird Aero has pioneered the development and operation of unmanned aerial systems (sUAS/Drones) for product deliveries. Notably, the company secured authorization from the Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), enabling them to conduct aerial deliveries within the country.
Now functioning as a B2B enterprise, Speedbird Aero offers drone logistics services to companies seeking safe and seamless product deliveries. Some of its notable clients include food delivery service iFood and other companies including Natura, Claro, and Grupo Pardini which have already benefited from their innovative solutions.
In terms of impact, Speedbird Aero boasts an impressive track record. The company claims it has transported a substantial 10,000 kg of cargo through the air to approximately 3 million people and has established partnerships with over 10 major companies globally.
Operating across continents, Speedbird Aero is now gearing up to expand its operations into the United States, with ambitions to achieve a global reach by 2030.
The recent funding injection will fuel the ongoing development of their delivery drones and the expansion of their operations. To date, Speedbird Aero has successfully secured a total of $8.8 million in funding across four rounds, according to data from Crunchbase.
