The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention has chosen Sentry BioPharma Services to store and distribute influenza vaccine for the national strategic reserve. The cold-chain logistics service provider will warehouse and distribute vaccine from its cGMP, FDA-registered facility in Indianapolis. Sentry CEO Jennifer Marcum says in an announcement that the company has a history of supporting the CDC for vaccine distribution that requires temperature maintenance.
She adds that Sentry facility, systems and processes meet CDC recommendations for vaccine storage and handling.
Sentry is hardly the only logistics service provider sensing gold in the cold. United Cargo and DHL Global Forwarding are among others that have launched temperature-control services and invested in infrastructure.
