Delivering 80 million face masks and PPE for NHS Wales during the Coronavirus pandemic
Customer requirements

Global demand for personal protective equipment during the Coronavirus pandemic put huge pressure on the NHS to ensure a reliable supply and logistics from China.

Reliable air shipments were required for the delivery of 80 million face masks and various PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) for NHS Wales.

The JAG UFS solution

JAG UFS would bring in eight weekly shipments bound for NHS Wales on specialist flights from Zhengzhou to London Heathrow and co-ordinate road delivery to a number of warehouses where the PPE could be distributed to NHS hospitals, surgeries and other facilities across Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Eight weekly shipments bound for NHS Wales were secured on specialist flights from Zhengzhou to London Heathrow. Boeing 747 Freighters fully loaded with critical personal protection equipment landed at London Heathrow Airport before being distributed by road to NHS warehouses, bringing urgent supplies to NHS frontline healthcare workers.

Results

JAG UFS worked in collaboration with Continuum delivering life-saving PPE for NHS Wales.

In total, JAG UFS arranged reliable logistics for over 80 million face masks and PPE for Wales in addition to the 100 million masks, PPE and Covid-19 test kits arranged for NHS Scotland.
