Bolloré charters 1 million protective masks from Vietnam to Réunion
Bolloré Logistics transported over one million protective masks from Vietnam to Réunion on June 7, 2020. The plane chartered by Bolloré Logistics, a Corsair Airbus A330, took off from Hanoi Noi Bai airport on Saturday 6 June with 1,382 boxes onboard, for a total volume of 138 cubic meter.
Since the implementation of the airlift, Bolloré Logistics rolled out alternative solutions by harnessing its global network and crisis unit at Roissy CDG airport to meet urgent needs stemming from the Covid-19 health crisis.
The entire process of transportation involved Bolloré Logistics teams in Vietnam, which managed the export operations, and the teams in Réunion, which received and shipped the parcels to the delivery point, this new operation posed a major logistics challenge and called for rigorous organisation.
"The main difficulty with a passenger plane consists in finding the right balance in terms of mass and dividing the boxes of masks between the seats and the hold," said Philippe de Crécy, VP Air Freight Europe at Bolloré Logistics.
Since the start of the crisis, Bolloré Logistics has played an active role in the transport of protective masks from Asia by implementing two airlifts with China and Vietnam. As of May 31, 2020, over half a billion masks had been transported via the airlifts, along with other protective equipment including surgical gloves, hydroalcoholic gel and respirators.
