FedEx Express is participating in the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine distribution programme.
Thanks to strict temperature control requirements, FedEx Express is using its Priority Overnight service supported by the FedEx Priority Alert advanced monitoring system.
The vaccines are now being delivered to a number of dosing centres around the US. FedEx is one of a number of major players in the supply chain that includes UPS.
“This is among the most important work in the history of our company, and we’re honored to be a part of the effort to help end this pandemic,” said Raj Subramaniam, president and chief operating officer, FedEx Corp. “I am immensely proud of our dedicated team members who continue to go above and beyond to help ensure the safe movement of these critical COVID-19 vaccines, especially during our busiest holiday shipping season to date. This is who we are and what we do at FedEx.”
