About Swoop Aero:

Swoop Aero was founded to transform how the world moves essential supplies by making access to the skies seamless. We were the first company globally to deliver a vaccine using a drone under a commercial contract. Since then, we’ve expanded globally, transforming the health supply chain with drone logistics operations in 6 countries.

The work we’re doing is shifting the future of healthcare. We are having an immediate impact on the lives of people, who live within the communities our operations are conducted in.We’ve got big plans to shift the paradigm in both developing and developed markets alike. We integrate air transport using drones into the first and last mile of the health supply chain, to make access to healthcare available everywhere.

To deliver on our goal we’ve built the world’s leading platform for seamless drone logistics, and to extend our reach we partner selectively with organisations across the globe who want to leverage our platform at scale to deliver genuine impact.

To do this, we’ve brought together a team of eternally optimistic and resourceful doers to tackle these seemingly insurmountable problems – and make it happen.
