Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. announced its drone-based logistics operations management platform, called AnyMile, a solution that is designed to enable businesses and fleet operators to schedule and manage cargo deliveries via drones over long distances of up to several hundred miles.

The platform is intended to support operation across all known categories of drones – multi-rotor, fixed-wing, single-rotor or fixed-wing hybrid VTOL – to provide an end-to-end resource planning and management system. Use of drones is expected to dramatically reduce asset transfer time for corporate shippers and logistics companies, enabling just-in-time inventory. AnyMile will interface with last-mile delivery service providers to create a door-to-door infrastructure solution for industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, oil and gas.

“The addition of AnyMile to Mitsubishi Electric’s suite of products supports the organization’s long-range vision to digitally transform our society,” said Zafer Sahinoglu, vice president and general manager of Mitsubishi Electric Innovation Center (MELIC). “Drone operators, corporate shippers, and transportation and logistics companies will benefit from access to shipment, fleet and service management applications, allowing for faster and more convenient deliveries.”

Recent research from GlobalMarkets.com indicates that drone use in the transportation, logistics and supply chain industries is expected to grow by a CAGR of 55 percent by 2030. The U.S. already has invested $9 billion in the drone industry since 2020 to support increasing demand for efficient product delivery and promote carbon neutrality.

The AnyMile platform is expected to enable businesses to seamlessly manage their shipments, drone fleets and infrastructure services, including scheduling cargo pick up at a specific location, tracking delivery to multiple destinations; managing drone maintenance tasks; live situational awareness; and performing routine operational tasks, such as generating customer invoices, booking services for drones including refuelling and much more.

The AnyMile drone logistics management platform is anticipated to be available for beta use with its core features in summer 2023.
