Snowman Logistics Readies Capability to meet Covid-19 Vaccine Requirement

• Make readies space for approximately 7 crore vaccine doses across its multiple facilities

• Partnering other operators for another 7 crore vaccine storage

• Preparing for vaccine delivery to Talukas and Villages

National, 3rd November 2020: Snowman Logistics, India’s leading cold chain logistic provider is reserving average 500 pallets (approx. 35 lacs doses of vaccine) in every location. In some locations they are reserving more than 500 pallets.  In total Snowman will be offering around 10000 pallets (approx. 7 crore doses of vaccine) space. The company can increase this availability, within short notice and can significantly expand capacity over a short period to meet evolving domestic and global demands.

Snowman have also mapped other cold storage operators with whom the company can partner on a need basis.  This can further help Snowman to create similar amount of space, if required.

Snowman is already managing vaccine distribution of Influenza/swine flu and Typhoid vaccines. This experience of ours will come handy while managing covid19 vaccine storage and distribution, stated Sunil Nair, CEO, Snowman Logistics.

Snowman runs 31 temperature-controlled warehousing facilities across 15 locations in the country, offering combined capacity of 108,375 pallets and has a fleet of about 300 refrigerated trucks that will further augment its vaccine delivery capability.

Speaking further on this, he said, “We have worked out solutions for small volume locations where there are no cold storages (Small towns, Taluka, Village etc.), and how we can use refrigerated containers, reach in freezers, etc for the delivery. We also have mapped out, as our partners transport capacities and how we can use them in short notice.  We can dedicate close to 200 trucks for this purpose, nationally”

“The task is mammoth, as it is not just about vaccine, but associated ancillary kits (syringes, needles, alcohol swabs, etc.) should also be distributed concurrently. This will need robust distribution planning and involvement of multiple players.” Sunil added.

Snowman’s technology and process are the best in class and can be used for 24×7 tracking of vaccine temperature whether the product is in their cold storage or in trucks on road.  The 24×7 manned Command Centre keeps watch on all such critical parameters and raises alerts and troubleshooting where required.
