MUMBAI : Jet Freight, one of India’s leading freight forwarders continued to leverage its complete logistics services to deliver over ten million vaccines across key locations in the country. Jet Freight logistics provided their logistics services to the Central Government of Routine Immunization vaccine under Prime Minister twenty-point program and Covid 19 vaccine mainly Covishield and Covaxin from Mumbai Central to across key locations in India through Air India flights. Its regional offices coordinated in building a strong network for delivering point-to-point vaccines to government hospitals and enhancing its reputation as a trusted logistics partner with leading pharma and government agencies. From key metros like Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad to other cities like Lucknow, Indore, Raipur, Jaipur, Chandīgarh, Patna, Bhopal, Varanasi, and Vishakhapatnam, etc. Jet Freight’s advanced cold chain supply services employed superior temperature-controlled Envirotainers that utilize active temperature control systems based on compressor cooling and electric heating technologies.

Jet Freight, a technology-enabled company is a prime choice among the leading airlines and is considered among the top 3 freight forwarders in the country, with international operations managed from their offices in Dubai & Netherlands. Jet Freight has added to its existing Ocean and Air Freight capabilities, a much deeper domestic supply chain combined with added services such as customs clearance and value-added services for clients that require transportation services with time-sensitive and temperature-controlled environmental needs. With over 10 regional offices across the country, Jet Freight integrates its logistic efforts for superior delivery services and helped in providing a seamless and speedy solution during the initial and ongoing battle against Covid 19. Jet Freight’s proximity to the air cargo complexes is another reason that contributed to delivering the vaccines since time was another sensitive factor when it came to making Covid vaccines available to government hospitals.

During the pandemic, our mission was to optimize our existing air and sea freight service expertise to deliver over ten million vaccines across the country.

Jet Freight’s proximity to the air cargo complexes helped secure faster clearances and timely delivery of the vaccines in superior temperature-controlled environments.
