DHL Global
Forwarding arranged for the collection of the vaccines from the manufacturing
site in Puurs, Belgium where the cargo was accompanied by security escorts on
the road to the Brussels International Airport. The cargo arrived at
Singapore’s Changi International Airport on December 21 where DHL handled the
customs clearance and final delivery to a designated location in Singapore. The
company will also handle the return of these special shipper boxes to Europe.

 

Throughout the
journey, the vaccine shipments were tracked by DHL. “Globally, we have been
preparing for many months to ensure DHL’s solutions were heavily tested with
the most stringent vaccine requirements in mind. We ran trials to ensure the
viability of the deliveries. Every effort was made to ensure the vaccines are
delivered within the fastest possible time, ensuring the quality, safety and
security of these critical shipments,” said Kelvin Leung, CEO, DHL Global
Forwarding Asia Pacific.

that they can be used to save lives,” he added.
