Dubai Airports, operator of Dubai International (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC), and GMR Hyderabad (GMR-HYD) have announced the creation of a Covid-19 vaccine distribution corridor.
After months of preparations by the two entities to design and create a seamless end-to-end logistics solution, the formalisation of the agreement was finally confirmed. The HYD-DXB vaccine corridor will deliver volume to impeccably handle up to 300 tonnes of vaccines per day. The partnership also includes Dnata Cargo, the airport service provider in Dubai.
Hyderabad is the world’s emerging vaccine capital with five major vaccine producers in its vicinity, while Dubai is perfectly positioned as the heart to efficiently deliver the vaccines to hundreds of cities across Europe, Africa, the Americas and the Middle East. The HYD-DXB vaccine corridor connects major vaccine manufacturers in India with markets around the world via Dubai’s cargo hub.
