Unmanned Cargo Aircraft changes the logistics value chain

Unmanned Cargo Aircraft (UCA) systems are about to bring massive disruptions to the transport sector. Stakeholders active in this industry have to adapt their organisation accordingly in order to optimize operations and revenues. UCA offer increased productivity and can open up new markets in areas where manned air transport is uneconomical and geographically limited. The Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference brings together technology leaders, cargo operators and end-users to share the status of these exciting opportunities. The conference also addresses the benefits of unmanned cargo for military purpose such as unmanned transport of goods in high-risk areas.

Focus topics:

  • Long Range / Medium-High Payload Systems
  • Specialised/Irregular Delivery Systems
  • Urban Delivery Systems
  • Military Systems
  • Autonomous operation architecture
  • Regulatory issues
  • New value chains / business models
  • and more…..

The Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference is part of the first global multimodal unmanned cargo systems event – a two-day event (June 13-14, 2017) that includes 4 dedicated conferences and an exhibition:

It is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and network with this pioneering community of unmanned cargo researchers, engineers, business developers and end-users.



On May 26, 2016, the third international edition of the Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference brought specialists from all over the world together to assess the potential of UCA and discuss these questions. Find more about the 2016 edition.
