An integral part of Operation Warp Speed, COVAX, and other global vaccine initiatives, UPS Healthcare manages advanced packing, tracking, and cold and frozen storage to ensure secure, compliant distribution of critical yet fragile vaccines and therapies.
Here’s how we put our cold supply chain plan to work to distribute the first COVID-19 vaccine shipments across the U.S.
We developed a custom thermal vaccine packaging solution surrounded with insulation and 50 lbs. of dry ice, which we produce on demand.
We helped vaccine distributors create a kitting solution to make it easier for hospitals and clinicians awaiting vaccine supplies.
Vaccines are shipped via temperature-controlled transport. Dry-ice packaging is replenished at our re-icing stations as needed.
We deliver the vaccines to medical facilities the next morning. Safe, viable arrival at -80°C means they are now ready to be used to help save lives.
