Bolloré Logistics pilots epidemic response plan for pharma transport
Bolloré Logistics has formed a health crisis unit of pharmaceutical and life science experts who will provide solutions and make decisions in the form of an epidemic response plan in the event of an increase in the pandemic and new government directives.
An alternative transport plan based on charters and freighters solutions is being implemented to ensure continuity of service. Based on both charters /part charters and hard block space capacities on freighter flights only, solutions on Eastbound and Westbound flows are piloted on a daily basis to adapt needs to capacities, maximizing operations through our air cargo hubs.
The company has mobilised with major companies of the healthcare industry and non-governmental organizations to ensure by urgency the end-to-end transport of pharmaceuticals, masks, medical equipment and life-saving products. Several charters are being implemented with tested and secure solutions, via Bolloré Logistics hubs under GDP, GMP and CEIV certification, from Miami for Latin America, Singapore for Asia, Canada and Chicago for North America, Roissy Charles de Gaulle, Liege and Luxembourg for Europe and Africa.
In addition, a new multimodal service has opened between production sites in the USA and Europe to Asia. Products are first shipped by air to be consolidated in the Singapore hub, a new cross-docking center recently created for this specific purpose. Products are then shipped by sea freight from Singapore to the South East Asia markets in temperature-controlled containers.
A track-and-trace system link guarantees the perfect visibility of operations in real time via geolocation along with the monitoring of the temperature shipments during transport. The Bolloré Logistics competence center made of healthcare experts remains operational 24/7 to closely monitor the flow of goods and prevent any disruption in the supply chain management.
