Automated drone applications in intralogistics

Automated drone missions with the HHLA Sky drone management system optimise processes in intralogistics. Speed up deliveries. Safeguard production. To make sure production lines keep moving, documents reach recipients on time, and logistics managers get an instant overview of complex situations.

The first drone management system to provide fully automated mapping of complete process chains comes from HHLA Sky. Automated transport, inspection and surveillance flights are possible. With more than 100 drones simultaneously. Even hundreds of kilometres beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS).


The HHLA Sky system can be fully integrated into existing ERP and workflow systems. Order, delivery and billing processes are harmonised and all assets networked on a company-wide basis via specific APIs.


New tasks? The drone management system will take care of them: All drone missions are monitored by just a few operations employees using the control centre software. Whether in Berlin, London, Singapore or Shenzen: Scale globally.

Highlights from the white paper

Industry platform

“Highly automated platform to centrally and simultaneously manage drone fleets in diverse locations across the globe.”

Safety & security

“Hardware and software are designed for industrial robustness and based on exceptionally high safety standards to guarantee sustainable, interruption-free operation.”

Robot operating system

“Whether they’re boats, transport vehicles or drones made by other manufacturers, our control centre manages and monitors all the unmanned and autonomous vehicles that you want to connect.”


“Comprehensive security mechanisms and procedures to comply with industrial standards as well as the laws and regulations at the place of use. Including adapting to the compliance management of the respective company.”

“Our aim is not just to simply unlock the third dimension of intralogistics, but, above all, to smoothly integrate it into the company’s resource and process management systems. We have developed an automated drone system 4.0 based on the strictest industrial safety standards, which can be integrated into the existing infrastructure and process landscape and is simultaneously freely scalable.”

Matthias Gronstedt, Managing Director of HHLA Sky


Examples of areas of application

Drone courier services of water samples for laboratory analysis
Ad-hoc flights of replacement parts or special tools to production lines
Spontaneous danger source analyses from the air

How automated drone fleets are transforming intralogistics
