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 bring 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.
