AmerisourceBergen supports worldwide Covid vaccine distribution

Via its supply chain network, drug wholesaler has helped deliver more than 75 million vaccines

As part of the drug wholesaler’s goal to securely deliver Covid vaccines to countries across the world, AmerisourceBergen Corporation (ABC)'s network of global businesses has supported the collective distribution of more than 75 million vaccines spanning 30-plus countries.

Since December 2020, Innomar Strategies and World Courier, who are both a part of ABC, have been working with numerous government agencies and supply chain partners to deliver Covid-19 vaccines worldwide. Also during that time, Alliance Healthcare—which ABC acquired in June from Walgreens Boots Alliance—has assisted with vaccine distribution efforts across Europe. This support runs across four continents, featuring a range of services, from third-party logistics (3PL) and importation, to temperature-controlled packaging, storage and transport.

“ … We know the global vaccination rollout is still in its early stages, and a tremendous amount of work is still needed to ensure people worldwide have access to these vaccines,” says Doug Cook, EVP and president, Business Group—Global, at ABC. “As supply increases, we remain prepared and ready to leverage our logistical expertise and distribution capabilities to support urgent efforts to broaden access globally.”
