DHL Express flew the vaccines in thermal packaging and arranged for them to be sent directly to a designated warehouse in Thailand, the company said in a press statement.
The arrival vaccines are part of the US donation to Southeast Asian countries, aiming to help Thailand and the region accelerate their vaccination programmes.
'We are proud to leverage our capabilities and network to transport this life-saving cargo in accordance with the stringent logistics requirements to get through the pandemic,' DHL managing director Herbert Vongpusanachai.
To date, DHL has transported close to 550 million vaccine doses to 147 countries worldwide. This is in line with our mandate of connecting people and improving lives and we are proud to continue playing an active role in seeking a safe, new normal for the businesses and communities we serve,' said Mr Vongpusanachai.
The shipment's biggest challenge was the stringent temperature requirements for the vaccine. They were delivered in a specially designed thermal shipper packaging customised by the manufacturer.
