pre-existing specialised Temperature Controlled Logistics (TCL) to combat the pandemic.

As the development of the COVID-19 vaccine leapfrogs across development phases,
stringent temperature requirements (up to – 80°C) will be a critical factor for its
transportation and warehousing at every stage. An efficient and specialized logistics
network will be a prerequisite, to ensure safe and rapid delivery of billions of Covid-19
vaccine doses for mass immunization, and other temperature sensitive pharma products on
a national & global scale.
Blue Dart has successfully tailored its existing Temperature Controlled Logistics solution to
transport critical shipments such as vaccines, medical samples and more. The TCL teams
work with three industry specific segments: Clinical Research Organization (CRO),
Vaccine/Testing Kit manufactures and Active Pharma Ingredient for swift and safe delivery
of shipments. As per research on Blue Dart’s consumer feedback, conducted through Net
Promoter Approach methodology, Blue Dart successfully scored a Net Promoter Score(NPS)
of 100% for its TCL solutions, even higher than its other services which has an enviable NPS
of 99.6%
Ketan Kulkarni CMO & Head – Business Development, Blue Dart, said “The right
partnerships are vital to secure critical medical supplies during health emergencies. We are
actively working with various pharmaceutical organizations that are conducting clinical trials
to produce a Covid-19 vaccine in India in their pre and post production journey. As a part of

the DPDHL Group, Blue Dart has the knowhow of the internal best practices in the life
sciences and healthcare logistics business and is a part of a large global logistics network
which allows us to use each of our sister Business Unit’s strength in providing the best
solution to our customer.”
He further added, “A number of factors such as warehousing, packaging and transportation,
regional distribution competence, consistent temperature management, requirement of
special equipment and availability of trained personnel to handle the temperature-sensitive
vaccines will come into play once the vaccine is developed. With an agile response team
overseeing the upscaling of our current capabilities, strong fleet of dedicated Boeing 757
aircrafts and robust infrastructure for our Temperature Controlled Logistics solutions, we
are capable and prepared to meet any immediate large-scale demand.”
