Millions of people don't access delivery, or must pay high delivery surcharges for a very basic service. A recent Scottish Parliament's Report revealed that 1 million Scottish were experiencing denial of service or "postcode penalties" (1/5 of the population).

Technology

Our zero-emissions Beetle drones efficiently carry cargo to and from remote locations, cutting straight and above complex terrains.

Their innovative design make them perfectly suited for day-to-day logistics. It has been made possible thanks to intense R&D from IONA's Team and partnerships with the best Aerospace players in the United-Kingdom and Europe.
