UPS Healthcare adds freezer farm capacity to support vaccine distribution in Asia

UPS  is deploying ultra-low temperature freezer farms at its dedicated healthcare logistics facility in Singapore, supporting the country’s ambitions to ramp up its cold storage capacity at Changi Airport to become a COVID-19 vaccine distribution hub for Southeast Asia.

Just slightly larger than an average household refrigerator, the freezers come with surprising storage capacity – a single unit can store more than enough doses to inoculate the entire population of the Pasir Ris neighborhood in Singapore, where Muhsin lives. (Roughly 148,000 people.)

“I feel really fortunate knowing the work we do here at UPS is part of a much bigger, and very important purpose – fighting the pandemic,” says Wang Xiu Zhen, a UPS veteran of more than 20 years.

Beyond storing and transporting vaccines, UPS Healthcare’s network within a network has also delivered important supporting elements for administering COVID-19 vaccines, such as syringes, diluents and accompanying medical supplies.
