Amidst the corona virus pandemic there has been an ever-increasing demand for masks, ventilators, hand sanitizers from many people, governments, countries. Uniforce China has received many requests for an immediate delivery of these items. One recent case is the urgent need for hand sanitizers in Norway.
Uniforce China had been sending hand sanitizers for this client daily by air to try to meet the demand in Norway, but with ever-increasing prices and limited space, this was becoming increasingly difficult. Rail transport would be too slow and hazardous as the hand sanitizer contains alcohol and is not accepted on rail freight from China. Ocean freight would be too slow for this pressing need. Best option was to send via truck as it would meet the required transit time and it is very cost effective.
Uniforce China sent off a truck with 1 container weighing 16 tons of hand sanitizer from Shanghai to Norway last Sunday, April 12. The truck is estimated to arrive on April 30, 2020 in Norway, where the hand sanitizers will be distributed to 12 consignees. The routing will take from Zhejiang to Kazakhstan, then the truck will go through Russia to Belarus, then to Poland through Sweden and finally to Uniforce Norway’s warehouse in Vestby, outside of Oslo for final distribution.
