As the nation faces the critical challenge of the COVID vaccine distribution and struggles to minimize wastage, logistics firm DTDC has now embarked upon a robust temperature-controlled vaccine transportation initiative.

DTDC has successfully transported approximately 39,000 doses of Covishield vaccines to various branches of a leading Bengaluru-based hospital chain within just 12 hours. The company has also delivered vaccines across Gurgaon, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Raipur and Jaipur.

Under DTDC’s newly-formed temperature-controlled vertical, the vaccines are preserved at the optimum temperature of 4 to 6 degrees centigrade during the course of the movement. DTDC has thus pioneered an efficient logistical service that will ensure that hospital chains/pharma companies can efficiently distribute vaccines to their various branches across the nation within the shortest time periods. 

The company has ensured that the transportation process meets all top-tier standards of quality and global best practices and helped the hospital chain develop the appropriate packaging and supported them with complete knowledge of the thermal system.

DTDC closely monitored the entire movement and recorded the temperature through a data logger ensuring complete visibility of temperature variations to the client.

The temperature controlled vaccine transportation vertical is one of our premier offerings  aimed at catering to the rising requirement of speedy and effective transportation of the much-needed vaccines across the nation. We hope that this will stand hospitals in good stead during this nationwide vaccination drive.”
