Delta has shipped its 4 millionth Covid vaccine dose from the US to Colombia. There are being shipped via Bogota, where the carrier works with a freight company to deliver them to where they are needed.
Regional field operations manager, Marcela Friedrich, said: “I was born in Colombia but have lived in the US for 16 years, and my parents live in Bogota, so these shipments are incredibly important for me. I feel that I am part of the solution and that I am helping to get my native country, and its economy, back to a new normal.”
Delta was the first US passenger airline to receive IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators Pharma Logistics Certification (CEIV) at its Atlanta hub and has long offered tailored pharmaceutical shipping options that meet specific temperature requirements for vaccines.
