Containerisation’s Role in Global Vaccine Logistics
An online seminar & virtual networking event for container logistics, cold chain & healthcare professionals
15 April 2021 from 1015am BST
While the first wave of ultra-low temperature COVID19 vaccine distribution is centred mainly around airfreight and road, containerisation is already playing a vital role in meeting the world’s greatest ever supply chain challenge. Over coming weeks and months, that role is only set to grow.
Today, container shipping is already enabling the international distribution of syringes, vials, PPE and other key medical equipment needed to administer vaccines. Container ports are stepping up as vaccine logistics hubs, working with airfreight, ocean and landside logistics to provide much-needed cold storage capacity and other supply chain services. Specialist ultra-deep freeze refrigerated containers are filling a gap where cold chain infrastructure is lacking. And as new vaccines roll out rapidly that do not require such deep refrigeration, reefer containers will play a growing role both in transport and storage.
This online seminar and virtual networking event brings together public and private stakeholders from across the global container shipping, cold chain and healthcare worlds to discuss the challenges and opportunities of vaccine logistics.
