Aramex Logistics' Road Haulage Helps Keep Hospitals Stocked Through Ash Cloud

Leaves Air Freight To Eat Their Dust
Shipping News Feature

IRELAND / UK – Global logistics provider Aramex have stepped up to the mark during the recent crisis caused by the ban on air freight by helping major pharmaceutical clients keep supplies of critical and time-sensitive medicines flowing to hospitals.

Aramex’ CEO Europe, Tommy Kelly, said: "In these very difficult and constantly changing times I am delighted to report that we have been able to meet 100% of our customers' requirements and that includes next day deliveries to even rural locations across Ireland.

"Our late cut-offs combined with the size and scale of our proactive operation means we can accommodate last minute additional customer volumes with ease. And right at this minute it is reliability that these types of customer need in order to make sure their products arrive on-time and in the right condition."

Aramex has been running in excess of twenty-five trailers between Ireland and the UK every night in order to make sure these important supplies got through in time for the next morning.

With flights now restored but uncertainty still remaining over how air traffic might be affected in the future due to volcanic influence, no doubt there will continue to be a market for Aramex’ services.
