Join Sandy Vosk and Dave Summers in Episode #8 in The Greatest Supply Chain Challenge in History – Global Distribution of the COVID-19 Vaccines. Sandy shares insights about Keller Rinaudo, CEO of @Zipline who he saw deliver the keynote presentation at the annual, CSCMP Edge Conference in October, 2018. Zipline’s mission is to provide every human on Earth with instant access to vital medical supplies. They have built the world’s fastest and most reliable delivery drone, the world’s largest autonomous logistics network, and a truly amazing team. Last month, Zipline announced that it is planning to deliver COVID-19 vaccines wherever it operates — including in the U.S.
“More than 100 million people in America — in both rural and urban areas — live in pharmacy deserts and lack adequate access to the medicine they need to stay healthy,” Keller Rinaudo told CNBC. “Building this 21st century infrastructure will not only create more high tech jobs in rural America, and create more green, zero emissions logistics options, but it could revolutionize the way millions get their care delivered.”
