How 1 billion doses of a coronavirus vaccine will be transported across the US
Cargo airlines such as Miami-based Amerijet, already transport vaccines for other diseases.
From the moment the shipments come off their planes, they say all their ground handlers are trained on how to handle vaccines and other pharmaceuticals.
“The important thing to understand is this type of movement happens every day. So regular vaccines for every other disease in the world move like this. Our logistics supply chain is set up for it and we can do it,” Derry Huff with Amerijet said.
Cargo companies said security will be another potential issue when it comes to transporting the COVID-19 vaccine because it will be considered valuable and in-demand.
