UPS Healthcare provides urgent support for Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories 19 May 2020

Transporting 30 tons of temperature-controlled medical cargo from India to the US

UPS has announced a collaboration with Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories to get 30 tons of pharmaceuticals from India to the USs via Europe. The sensitive cargo had to be shipped within a controlled temperature range to ensure product stability. Given the supply chain challenges and restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic, UPS Healthcare and Dr. Reddy’s created an emergency supply chain plan to replenish pharmaceutical stocks in US markets.

During this pandemic, moving critical controlled room temperature medicines requires extra planning given the air market capacity demand levels. UPS is providing compliant storage, transit and customs clearance expertise to help ensure products move quickly and retain their efficacy.

The time-critical flight originated in Hyderabad, India, moved through UPS’s European air hub in Cologne, Germany, and continued to the UPS Worldport air hub in Louisville, Kentucky. UPS works closely with international customs and authorities and will continue to deliver essential medicines and goods to help support the battle against the global Coronavirus pandemic.
