DHL delivers vaccine to Japan

[ February 15, 2021   //   ]

DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist of Deutsche Post DHL Group, has been contracted to handle Covid vaccine distribution to Japan, with the first delivery in mid-February. Further shipments will be delivered by air from the DHL Global Forwarding hub in Belgium to Japan throughout the year. DHL also handles the customs clearance and delivery to a temporary storage facility in Japan, as well as dispatching the vaccines to vaccination facilities across Japan. To safely store the vaccine at -70 degrees until the final domestic delivery in Japan, deep freezers were installed at a DHL storage facility.
