CCA debuts change management matrix

Tool will help airports with coronavirus vaccine prep


With a potential inoculation on the horizon, the Cool Chain Association (CCA) has launched a Covid-19 Distribution Change Management Matrix. Its objective: supporting airports with their coronavirus vaccine logistics plans.

As noted by AviationPros, the matrix examines adherence to temperature requirements, packaging, forecast and quantity and timeframe across different stages in a vaccine’s journey through an airport—this is different than the initiative launched by Worldwide Flight Services (WFS), known as “Project Coldstream,” which determines how to efficiently transport large volumes of Covid-19 vaccines.

CCA will look to share the matrix with members for them to fill out. From there, the information will be combined to assist the supply chain in determining focal points, such as training needs, safety and security, as well as supplier and risk management.
