December 15, 2020: Aero Africa has announced that its hubs in Johannesburg and Nairobi can handle vaccines for regional network rollout into Southern and East Africa. The vaccine team in both the hubs will monitor all the shipments 24x7 with specialist cool chain transport partners to upgrade tracking and GPS capabilities.
The company has formed a strategic partnership with Tower Cold Chain Solutions to utilise its equipment for all shipments from origin to final deliveries in the region.
Aero Africa operates B737F services via JNB to and from Southern Africa and Indian Ocean Island, and has partnered with regional cargo carriers in East and West Africa.
In a release it said, “It comes without saying that we would be very active over the next few days on confirmation from carriers and local governments on their documentation requirements and regulations into moving the vaccines. We would need to avoid all delays and risk in terms of the transit stations. All parties need to work together and support each other for the roll out to happen smoothly. Aero-Africa is committed to stay in touch with the customer demands throughout the process of vaccine supply and will remain agile at all times and can work through the challenges that lie ahead.”
Aero Africa operates through regional service desks in Africa, Europe and China, and under one centralised accounting centre, servicing exclusively the global freight and aviation community.
