UPS has made one of their most important deliveries in their 33-year history in Asia Pacific, the delivery of the first Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines to South Korea.
UPS successfully orchestrated the arrival of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines, which require ultra-cold chain storage. The vaccines were packed and stored with great care in Belgium for their journey to Incheon and then driven to designated storage facilities throughout South Korea, to be administered to front-line healthcare workers and others deemed most at risk.
Together with South Korea’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency and other critical players, it was a successful public-private partnership.
This is the start of South Korea’s COVID-19 vaccination journey. UPS will leverage its global healthcare expertise and capabilities to continue delivering COVID-19 vaccines to South Korea and the rest of the world.
