The Corona pandemic has a tremendous effect on all of us worldwide and this will remain until the virus has been banned, which most effectively will be achieved by a successful vaccine. The vaccines will be produced on a set of specific sites around the globe and it will require a large distribution network and collaboration between the logistics supply chain to deliver and handle as quickly as possible.
Not only is the large number of shipments expected for the COVID-19 vaccines a task, but we also expect to step up to maintain the vaccines in a good condition as required. Some need to be transported by -80 others up to 8 degrees Celsius. We are experienced with temperature sensitive goods and are aware of the harmful impact when exposed to temperature deviations.
Therefore, it is very important to have a safe, secure and swift logistics supply chain to ban the COVID-19 virus out of the world.
