Zipline builds products that improve access to healthcare and saves lives. Zipline created Zip, a small robot airplane designed for a high level of safety, using many of the same approaches as commercial airliners. It can carry vaccines, medicine, or blood. 
Health workers at remote clinics and hospitals text an order with Zipline for the medical products they need, on demand. Zipline safely stores medical products at its Distribution Center, enabling immediate access to even the most sensitive or scarce items. These items are packaged here and prepare for flight, maintaining cold-chain and product integrity. Fifteen minutes later, the medical products are delivered gently by parachute, landing in a designated area the size of a few parking spaces.
