144 thermo-containers with Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccines were delivered onboard charter flights of Volga-Dnepr Group’s carriers – AirBridgeCargo Airlines and ATRAN Airlines - to Kishinev (Moldova), Mexico City (Mexico) and Hyderabad (India). Transportation of over 25 tonnes of special cargo has been organized by The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) in partnership with DHL Global Forwarding for less than two days with the aim to support national vaccination programmes.
Tatyana Arslanova, Executive Operating Officer of Volga-Dnepr Group, highlights: ‘It is a great honour and responsibility to be entrusted with transportations of Sputnik V vaccines. All the flights have been organized in line with the current industry requirements and biosafety measures. Not only have we been able to deliver several batches of vaccines lately but have also carried production lines which will upscale vaccine manufacture in various countries of the world’.
The carriers within the Volga-Dnepr Group continue strengthening their expertise in vaccine and peripheral cargo transportations. Apart from air freight delivery, the companies offer complex solutions covering documentation, road feeder services, packaging solutions for temperature-sensitive products, ground handling of special containers, multimodal logistics schemes and many other parts of cargo transportation.
