The DroneUA team, together with experts of the Ukrainian agricultural market, announces the first online service of its own development. We are launching an innovative resource for the development of service agribusiness and strengthening global food security.

FarmFleet is a specialized online platform that will become a meeting place for two parties: service companies that provide services for the introduction of PPE and farmers who need these services. It will now be possible to order drone services in almost one click.

Who is behind the development of FarmFleet's innovative platform?

  • Oleksandr Khizhnyak, expert in AgTech transformations in agribusiness, ex-head of the #DigitalAgriBusiness digital transformation program at Kernel.
  • Volodymyr Haplik, an expert in the development of the agrochemical market, has more than 10 years of experience as a sales and marketing manager in the CIS market of Syngenta.
  • Valery Yakovenko, co-founder of DroneUA, expert in robotics and marketing innovations in agriculture.
  • Fevzi Ametov, co-founder of DroneUA, expert in international projects, operational management, corporate sales.
  • Ihor Chaykivskyi, co-founder of "Robotizovani Agrosistemy" LLC, the largest operator of drone spraying services in Ukraine.

What is FarmFleet?

FarmFleet is an online resource for agricultural producers and service companies that combines the needs of agricultural operations and the technical capabilities of their satisfaction with the involvement of external contractors.

The task of FarmFleet is to give farmers an effective market tool for attracting external contractors, with guarantees, controlled quality and the possibility of long-term planning.

Agricultural producers on the platform get access to the database of service companies from all over Ukraine. By creating an order in the system with fixing the date, area, drug, geolocation, the customer receives a list with the most relevant performers. And he can independently choose the optimal one: according to cost, speed or other criteria.

Service companies based on the platform receive comprehensive support: from receiving an order, signing documents, making payment to full management of resources and a team. That is, FarmFleet manages all processes between the client and the executor, and also provides all operational work of the service company.

In the initial version, the FarmFleet platform is implemented for the market of services for the introduction of PPE by spraying drones, which was growing at an extremely fast pace even before the start of hostilities in the country. The platform is currently undergoing final testing, and the market launch is scheduled for early July.

The possibilities offered by FarmFleet

The new service will be able to significantly accelerate and increase the development of the service business for the provision of services by spraying drones and will form a new model of the service market of agricultural technical services. The FarmFleet platform is designed to solve the following tasks:

  • search for external resources;
  • booking and planning;
  • team management;
  • operational activity;
  • customer relations;
  • digital document flow;
  • certified drugs.

Despite the war situation and the difficulties faced by Ukrainian business, the FarmFleet team is confident in the great potential of the resource. The professional development of the service business market in agriculture will contribute to the strengthening of food security on a global scale.

The openness of Ukrainian agribusiness to innovative technologies makes Ukraine a country of great opportunities. And the successful experience of Ukraine has the potential to be multiplied by the leading countries of Europe and the world.

FarmFleet is a global product that was developed and launched in Ukraine under martial law. Because Ukraine is about the future, it is about innovations and advanced solutions that are created here and now.
