Logenix is delivering many COVID-19 relief shipments to Guatemala via air and ocean freight. Our COVID-19 response projects included multiple shipments of COVID vaccine syringes, resuscitation masks, pulse oximeters, and other critical supplies. Logenix expertly overcame supply chain challenges and port congestion from origins in Asia, still achieving unrivaled turnaround times from request to delivery, continuously keeping our client’s project on-time and on-budget.
Logenix managed shipments of COVID tests valued at 3.3 million USD to South Asia on behalf of just one client in July 2021. Weighing more than 22,000 kilos and valued at 3.3 million USD, 120 pallets were shipped to three different locations in South Asia. Of these cold chain shipments, two required temperature control shipping, one at -30°C and the other at 15°C-25°C. Despite high political visibility, an increase in COVID cases at destinations, and other current market challenges, these urgently needed supplies were successfully delivered to Nepal, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and more.
In early May of 2020 Logenix delivered 1500 COVID test kits to Uganda. Providing cold chain solutions under Logenix PharmaPlus™, test kits were shipped between the required 2°C to 8°C. This shipment was our client’s first COVID test kit shipment and took only 10 days from request to delivery despite complex supply chain operations resulting from global lockdowns and growing pandemic challenges.
Amid worldwide country shutdowns and closures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Logenix utilized partner networking, flexible route creation, and innovative problem solving to keep cargo moving to where it was needed most.
Countries like Bhutan and Nepal closed their borders and air carriers canceled their flights into the countries during peak COVID-19 breakout periods resulting in no routing options for cargo into these countries. To avoid products expiring, Logenix stayed agile and flexible, creating last mile routes and working closely with government authorities at destination to allow the acceptance of the trucks to cross borders upon arrival allowing delivery to be completed from door to door within 2 weeks of cargo collection.
When Mongolian Airlines decreased their operation from weekly flights to bi-weekly capacity and then was forced to cancel flights due to limited passenger volumes, Logenix organized a charter flight from Europe to Mongolia. Due to limited commercial lift and unreliable carrier schedule, Logenix expertly managed the consolidation of medical goods from four origins and five separate orders. The 44 cubic meters of cargo required 3 different levels of temperature control, ambient, +2-+8C, +15- +25C along with hazardous goods.
Bringing evolutionary progress to global health supply chain operations for 20 years, Logenix has been applying our expertise to support COVID-19 response efforts throughout the pandemic. Logenix has managed the logistics for COVID-19 response projects to over 80 developing countries with a total value of over $270 million USD. Our established global network and comprehensive cold chain solutions continues to expand our reach, supplying more and more countries with PPE, ventilators, test kits, vaccine supplies and other critical medical goods.
