Sometimes, it's worth reporting a story just so that we can show the important work forklifts do - like the one shown here loading COVID-19 vaccines at a DHL facility in Singapore. That shipment is part of the more than 1 billion doses delivered in more than 160 countries by DHL since the global vaccine campaign began in December 2020. DHL has more than 9,000 life sciences and healthcare specialists across its dedicated global network to handle the complexities of vaccine deliveries "Looking back at the state of emergency these past nine months, we are honoured to be playing our part, seamlessly managing and executing multiple supply chain set-ups without cold chain interruptions or security incidents," says Katja Busch, chief commercial officer at DHL. "We are working across multiple supply chain set-ups and managing direct distributions in certain countries. We implemented new dedicated and reliable services at an accelerated speed to ship the highly temperature-sensitive vaccines, as well as ancillary supplies and test kits. In line with our purpose of 'Connecting people, Improving Lives', we will continue tapping into our cold chain infrastructure, resilient global network, and deep pharmaceutical logistics knowledge and experience of our people." DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Express have been tasked with transporting COVID-19 vaccines on multiple routes from Europe and other origins to countries across Asia Pacific, South America and Europe. DHL Supply Chain is responsible for the proper storage and local distribution of the vaccines in several German states. "We are incredibly proud to be entrusted with the logistics of delivering these vital COVID-19 vaccine doses to countries in Asia Pacific. To make it available to as many people as possible, our specialists have worked tirelessly to ensure that they arrived safely and promptly," says Leonora Lim, head of life science and healthcare, DHL Customer Solutions and Innovation, Asia Pacific.
