Training for Truck Drivers and Entire Workforce on COVID-19 Vaccines Handling

Managing the last mile of COVID-19 vaccines is a major challenge for logistics, as approximately 15 billion doses need to be shipped worldwide. To ensure proper handling of the transport of medicines, such as COVID-19 vaccines, strict processes must be followed to maintain the cold chain of the products.


If handled incorrectly, temperature changes during transport can compromise the integrity of these products. Therefore, all those involved in the logistics chain need to be trained so that they are aware of the different stages of the pharma chain, know how to follow instructions and know their responsibilities.
