As part of the conference, warehouse and facility tours provide for a unique opportunity to connect conference discussions to real life operations. This year we have partnered with Zipline to give participants an opportunity to tour a distribution center and possibly see a drone take flight. Zipline International LLC (Zipline) is an automated logistics company that designs, manufactures, and operates drones as a service to make lifesaving deliveries to those in need, wherever they are.
More than two billion people lack adequate access to essential medical products, such as blood and vaccines, due to challenging terrain and gaps in infrastructure.
Zipline improves access to these supplies by flying over impassable mountains and washed-out roads, delivering directly to remote clinics. We centralize supply and provide on-demand deliveries, completely reducing waste and stock-outs.
Zipline provides a seamless delivery system at an affordable price, obsessing over every detail, so you can focus on patient health.
