TUI cargo ready for Covid 19 vaccine transport

Transporting crucial vaccines

With the recent experiences in the cargo industry, including flights with cargo in cabin for medical equipment, TUI is taking the next steps to respond adequately to the demand of the cargo market.

Dieter Bruneel, Director Operations Western Region: “The delivery and transportation of the covid 19 vaccine is going to be one of the largest logistical undertakings in history. We at TUI look forward to facilitate in this challenge, by transporting crucial vaccines and pharmaceutical products around the world. Pharmaceutical and life science products require stringent handling and transport conditions, or potentially the medicine loses its potency and may become ineffective. This creates additional operational challenges. We look forward to contribute to the worldwide challenge of transporting crucial vaccines and pharmaceutical products to support recovery: the faster this health crisis is under control, the faster all of our customers at TUI can enjoy their holidays again with us, their trusted partner”.

TUI Cargo is being coordinated on a group level by Leen Vander Kuylen, Director Supplier Management & Procurement at TUI Aviation
