First drone test flight

First drone test flight

CEO Gert Bervoets announced earlier this year that H.Essers would soon be carrying out its first test flights using drones for automated inventory checks. On 15 September the big day arrived. The drone made its maiden flight at our distribution centre for our customer Proximus. The location was not randomly selected; like us, Proximus consistently emphasises the importance of innovation in its operational processes. CIO Erik Lamoral has full details of the first test flight.
