To support the Australian government’s inoculation program, DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist of Deutsche Post DHL Group, will deliver additional doses of COVID-19 vaccines on a weekly basis into the country.
DHL Global Forwarding arranged for the collection and airfreight of the vaccines from the manufacturing site in Europe and upon the vaccines’ arrival in Australia, handled the customs clearance and final delivery to a designated location.
Charles Kaufmann, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding North Asia & South Pacific said: “Logistics plays a critical role in getting vaccines to where it is urgently needed. Globally, across many markets, our cold-chain network and pharmaceutical logistics expertise have meticulously planned every last detail to manage an extremely complex operation seamlessly.”
The strength of DHL’s global logistics network is deployed in Australia’s on-going response to the COVID-19. In December last year, the Australian Department of Health announced contracts with logistics partners, including DHL Supply Chain, to “design and operate a national distribution network” to support nationwide vaccinations even in remote and hard to reach areas.
“The shipments were delivered on time, and most importantly, in the right condition according to strict requirements. That’s the result of many months of rigorous planning to ensure the vaccines are delivered within the fastest possible time while ensuring the quality, safety and security of these critical shipments,” said George Lawson, Managing Director, DHL Global Forwarding Australia.
“Connecting People, Improving Lives is part of our Group’s core purpose. As we join the global response to the pandemic, we live this by doing what we do best — providing first rate logistics in the communities we operate in,” Lawson added.
