Delivering PPE & Covid-19 tests for NHS Scotland

Delivering 100 million face masks, life-saving PPE & covid-19 test kits for NHS Scotland
Customer requirements

Worldwide shortages of personal protective wear and global need for Covid-19 testing kits resulted in huge demand for these critical supplies and disruption in air freight services.

Regular air shipments were required for the delivery of 100 million face masks, various PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) and Covid-19 virus testing kits.

The JAG UFS solution

Over three weeks, JAG UFS's teams in the UK and Shanghai worked tirelessly with Continuum Scotland and Unifi.id Movement Intelligence to co-ordinate this essential supply chain and secure air freight services for NHS Scotland.

JAG UFS would bring in ten weekly shipments bound for NHS Scotland on specialist flights from Shanghai to Glasgow Prestwick Airport.

Results

Boeing 747 Freighters fully loaded with critical medical and personal protection equipment landed at Prestwick Airport, bringing the much-needed supplies to our heroic frontline healthcare workers.

Once unloaded from the 12-hour flight, the cargo was transferred onto trucks headed to a number of warehouses. From there the supplies were distributed to NHS hospitals, surgeries and other facilities across Scotland.

These shipments made headlines with coverage from BBC News, Sky News, The Mirror, Metro, The Herald, Daily Record, The Scotsman and many more.

"I just want to thank you and your staff for the outstanding work and service in dealing with the very tight time frames we had to get the PPE in from China. It was pivotal in getting supplies to front line NHS staff and critically getting Covid clinics opened on time. We really can’t thank you enough for all the effort you put in."
