[Dallas, 6th of October 2023]- Expect a significant transformation in healthcare logistics as Jedsy, the innovative Swiss start-up known for its innovative delivery drones, unveils a substantial partnership with Asklepios Kliniken, one of the leading players in Germany's healthcare sector. Revealed at the UP.Summit, this noteworthy collaboration is set to bring about substantial changes in the medical supply delivery landscape, with far-reaching effects that extend beyond industries.
Founded in early 2021 by aerospace visionary Herbert Weirather and three-time Aerobatic Helicopters World Cup champion Mirko Cesena, Jedsy has been on a mission to rewrite the rules of delivery with the mantra "Delivery when it matters." At the heart of Jedsy's innovation lies a concept that has electrified the logistics industry: direct docking of their advanced delivery drones at the recipient's window or balcony, resulting in unparalleled speed and precision in medical supply delivery.
Jedsy's ingenious docking stations that double as charging hubs, enables an unprecedented level of automation and decentralization within their delivery network. The unique landing and docking mechanism do cut the intralogistics and provides an unparallel customer experience for shipments. This innovation not only ensures lightning-fast deliveries but also promises remarkable cost-efficiency.
In partnership alignment, Asklepios and Medilys (a division of Asklepios focussing on laboratory and diagnostic services) come together for a shared mission. Asklepios, a heavyweight in Germany's healthcare landscape since its founding in 1985, boasts nearly 170 facilities and a workforce of over 67,000 professionals. They are synonymous with a holistic patient-centric approach, underpinned by values such as Medical Excellence, Innovation, and Social Responsibility.
Medilys, a dynamic division of Asklepios, shines as an exemplar of innovation within the healthcare giant. As a specialized provider of laboratory and diagnostic services, Medilys plays a pivotal role in ensuring the highest standards of patient care. Their commitment to advancing medical diagnostics and services has earned them a well-deserved reputation for excellence within the Asklepios network.
Jedsy and Medilys are embarking on a transformative partnership aimed at revolutionizing logistics. Their collaboration will establish new delivery routes where the drone delivery stands in stark contrast to traditional heavy car delivery.
Extensive investigations are already underway for the first routes, including ambitious plans for further 49 connections. This bold expansion underscores their steadfast commitment to efficiently serve an ever-growing healthcare network, ensuring patients have timely access to care precisely where and when it's needed most. The drone delivery's superior speed, reduced environmental impact, and enhanced accessibility reflect their dedication to pioneering healthcare logistics.
In addition to solidifying this partnership, Jedsy and Asklepios have a grander vision in mind that is not just addressing inefficiencies in the supply chain and adding speed to healthcare to increase quality, but measurable add to the sustainability targets through reducing emission, noise and operating time of machinery.
Embracing the European Green Deal - A Bold Commitment to Sustainability
As proponents of environmental responsibility, both Jedsy and Asklepios are committed to aligning their efforts with the principles of the European Green Deal. This partnership reflects their shared dedication to sustainability and efforts to minimize their carbon footprint.
By adopting Jedsy's cutting-edge delivery drone technology, this collaboration is set to significantly reduce CO2 emissions. Compared to conventional car-based medical supply deliveries, the partnership is expected to achieve a remarkable reduction of up to 99% in carbon emissions. This substantial decrease in greenhouse gas emissions reflects their shared dedication to building a greener, more environmentally conscious future.
In an era when environmental concerns weigh heavily on global consciousness, Jedsy and Asklepios’ commitment to the European Green Deal demonstrates their proactive stance in addressing the urgent need for sustainable practices in healthcare logistics. They aim not only to set an industry standard but also to inspire other healthcare providers and logistics companies to follow suit, thus contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly healthcare ecosystem. Asklepios has only recently been nominated for the finals of the 16th German Sustainability Award in the healthcare sector, the biggest award in this field in Germany. A jury of around 150 experts selected Asklepios as one of the pioneers of transformation in the industry. Accordingly, Asklepios is pursuing a consistent sustainability strategy that serves as a prerequisite for long-term economic success.
