Natilus (US) was co-founded in 2016 to commoditize the cargo transportation sector through creativity and cutting-edge technology. It was established with the goal of decentralizing the air cargo transport sector by developing a new fleet of autonomous, blended wing body (BWB) freight aircraft that will commoditize airfreight and cut emissions by half. Natilus aircraft create a new turnkey solution for clients using preexisting ground infrastructure and typical air cargo containers. To reduce the overall cost of the solution and produce 50% less CO2, Natilus vehicles transport cargo with a more aerodynamic profile.


Dronamics (UK) is the first cargo drone airline in the world. It is developing a middle-mile powered cargo drone named Black Swan, which can transport 350 kg (770 lb) to a distance of up to 2,500 km (1,550 mi), up to 80% faster, 50% less expensively, and with up to 60% fewer emissions than alternative modes of transportation, such as air freight. The company is a pioneer in the development and operation of large, long-range drones designed specifically for cargo. This makes it possible for a range of businesses, including pharma, food, e-commerce, and spare parts, to ship the same day over very long distances. Dronamics is the first authorized cargo drone airline in Europe and the first Global Strategic Partner for drones for IATA.
