Wilhelmsen’s – Pilot launch in Singapore: Autonomous drone delivery of parcels from shore to ship

Scheduled to launch at Singapore’s Marina South Pier in November 2018, Wilhelmsen’s Ships Agency and Airbus will be piloting the delivery of maritime essentials via Airbus’ Skyways unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to vessels at anchorage.

Make history with us

Be one of the first in the world to have maritime essentials delivered to your vessels. Limited flights are available for our pilot trial in Singapore – register your interest soon to avoid disappointment. Even if you do not have port calls in Singapore, you can still register your interest – and if we roll out the service to your port of call you’ll be on our priority list to get first entry into the pilot trial.

What type of vessels are eligible for the drone delivery pilot?

Initially, the two weeks pilot trial will be targeting OSVs and Bulk Carriers from shore at the Eastern Working and Eastern Holding anchorages. However, if there is strong interest from other vessel segments, we will explore other options as well.

What type of parcels are available for drone delivery and what is the weight limit?

These are some examples of items (though not limited to) which we are planning to deliver during the pilot trial:

Last Mile Deliveries: Spare parts, parcels from Ship Owners, documents

Marine Products: Water and fuel test kits, cutting nozzles, coupling screws, gas hose, welding cables, welding rods, grinding discs

3D Printed Consumables from our onshore 3D printing lab

What are the benefits of autonomous drone delivery?

UAV technology has proven its ability to speed up deliveries, slashing the lead times we typically see on traditional forms of last mile delivery. With a quicker response rate and turnaround time of up to 6X, it has the potential to lower shore – to – ship delivery costs by up to 90% in some ports.

By replacing launch boat deliveries with unmanned autonomous deliveries, the risks of personal accidents to board vessel are significantly mitigated.

Shipping currently accounts for 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions and could rise to 15%, if left unchecked. Aligned with IMO’s mission to reduce greenhouse gases by 50% by 2050, our commitment to tackling climate change can be further realized by substituting launch boat deliveries (which result in carbon emissions) with drones.
