AirBridgeCargo delivers vaccines from Moscow to Frankfurt for UNICEF
AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), part of Volga-Dnepr Group, has delivered yellow fever vaccines from Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport (Russia) to Frankfurt (Germany) with further trucking to Liege (Belgium).
A 36-tonne UNICEF shipment transportation was organized in partnership with ABC’s customer, DSV, which prepared over 1,000 special boxes to guarantee safe and intact delivery of sophisticated medicines. A complex delivery, which embraced several stakeholders, will be part of the immunization programme in Africa.
“For the last five years, we have deepened our expertise in the transportation of healthcare products, with vaccines being of paramount importance to prolong the life of the world’s population and facilitate well-timed vaccination, especially for children. While yellow fever still stays a very common disease in Africa and South America, we are honoured to be part of the cold chain to prevent its further spread and support routine immunization programmes of the local population,” said Nikolay Glushnev, general director, AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
“DSV Russia focuses on arrangement and securing uninterrupted supply of vaccines for UNICEF and other vital supplies for people in need. ABC is the leader in pharma transportation and our reliable carriers, who is always trusted by us and accomplishes this important mission,” commented Ivan Shevchenko, airfreight manager Air&Sea, DSV.
Over the last six months, ABC has prioritized its healthcare services, introducing sterile services, advancing its online solutions to improve customer experience, disinfecting cargo and cargo equipment, including freighters, and working under the protection of its frontline personnel across the globe.
