MUMBAI : Jeena Criticare, the pharmaceutical and critical healthcare logistics arm of the 100+ year old legacy brand, Jeena & Co., has been recently appointed to distribute Serum Institute of India’s COVID 19 vaccine, COVISHIELD, for Private Hospital Supplies, across the country.
The impact of the pandemic remains a matter of primary concern, more so now, with the impending third wave, and so does the logistics hurdles. Having said, it is not a misnomer that the logistics sector is called as the frontline warriors of India Inc. today. It is indeed the robust and seamless management of the entire logistics and pharma supply chain that ensured the effective distribution of COVID Vaccines across the length and breadth of the country, enabling millions across the country to be able to combat this pandemic. The Central Government told Parliament on July 23, that a total of 135 crore doses of Covid-19 vaccines will be made available in the country between August and December. So every arm of manufacturing and distribution will have to work as a well-oiled collaborated machinery.
Jeena Criticare logistics is such a company that is leading this defence from the front. In the entire pandemic period from 2020 and till date they have been instrumental in clearing and moving 3000 MT of covid care equipment that include Oxygen concentrators, RT PCR kits, PPE kits, Hospital beds, medicines & critical care drugs, masks, vaccines, ventilators and what have you. Known for their fastest speed & delivery which are of life-saving importance, they have been able to get import clearance from 24 hrs to 5 hours flat, for COVID Care aid and other healthcare transportations from countries like, South Korea, Germany, USA, Taiwan, China, Italy and also the WHO. With their global logistics support, Jeena has also been a part of India’s export chain enabling healthcare to various countries and also for customers like the WHO.
“This is a proud moment for Jeena Group, as we are actively a part of the nation building process. We are distributing the vaccine shipments which are otherwise time & temperature sensitive, in a record time! 70% of the vaccines are delivered pan India within 8 – 12 hours flat. It is important that the nation’s vaccine distribution system is empowered and made robust in these trying times, once again now, when we are staring at an impending third wave. We are happy to associate with Serum Institute of India, the dominant vaccine manufacturer in India and distribute their Covishield vaccines to even the most remote parts of India”, says Cyrus Katgara – Partner, Jeena & Co.
The impact of the pandemic remains a matter of primary concern and so does the logistics hurdles. Having said, it is not a misnomer that the logistics sector is called as the frontline warriors of India Inc. to day. If it would not have been their tireless efforts in loading, dispatching, import clearances, cryogenic equipment, warehousing facilities, seamless supply chain & last mile logistics and the entire operational management of enabling critical health care to us, we would have perhaps not been able to combat this pandemic as much as we are doing. The Central Government told Parliament on July 23 that a total of 135 crore doses of Covid-19 vaccines will be made available in the country between August and December. So every arm of manufacturing and distribution will have to work as a well-oiled collaborated machinery.
