Ceva Logistics moved 700,000 doses of the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine from Beijing to Entebbe International Airport for the Ugandan Ministry of Health under its Forpatients healthcare scheme. The product required a temperature of between 2 to 8°C throughout transport and storage. Ceva said its team responded quickly to provide a solution for the 21 pallets of vaccines in a challenging spot airfreight market.
Executive vice president of Ceva’s global healthcare sector, Niels Van Namen, said: “Our healthcare customers, like the Ugandan Ministry of Health, are looking for transport options that keep the end patient in mind. Individuals receiving Covid vaccinations should not have to worry about the reliability of their dose. That’s our job, which is why behind every shipment, we see a patient.”
