Hyper-Efficient Autonomous Air Transport

Reduce air transport costs for inter-island air freight by up to 63%.


Avol builds autonomous, electric aircraft to reduce air transport costs for logistics carriers. We provide a 3PL air transport service using proprietary autonomous electric aircraft to fly directly between distribution hubs to reduce costs and delays.

The key is volume. Cargo aircraft reach volume capacity before payload limit, so we build unique, blended-wing aircraft with best-in-class cargo volume so you can ship what you need to ship.
