On the eve of the January 2022 polio vaccination drive, Beyond Logistics Ltd joined the Ministry of Health to launch Phase III of the Cold Chain Equipment Optimization Project (CCEOP).
For Beyond Logistics Ltd (BLL), this involves warehousing, distribution, installation and commissioning of 1,435 vaccine refrigerators in over 130 districts across the country.
The project will run for five months after which the three year after-sales service period will commence. As the Minister of Health Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng noted during the project launch at Kololo Independence Grounds on 12th January, 2022, “it’s extremely exciting that we are flagging off vaccine refrigerators on the eve of the launch of the polio campaign.
This demonstrates to you our commitment in ensuring that we reduce childhood mortality, morbidity and disability due to vaccine preventable diseases…adults are also currently receiving their Covid-19 vaccination.”
As MoH leverages on cold chain capacity, Beyond Logistics Ltd (BLL) is enabling them to reduce vaccine spoilage and respond to Covid-19 vaccination, childhood immunization and the recently launched polio vaccination drive.
The MoH has been implementing the CCEOP over three phases. BLL was entrusted with the responsibility of implementing CCEOP Phase III after it successfully implemented CCEOP Phase II.
This responsibility corresponds with BLL’s mission of “Building Effective Solutions in the Health Supply Chain”.
Who is Beyond Logistics Ltd?
A Third-Party Logistics (3PL) company, Beyond Logistics Ltd (BLL) provides quality warehousing, local and international procurement, distribution services, project management, as well as local and international representation services.
For the launched CCEOP Phase III, BLL is the local technical representative of Haier Biomedical Company Ltd. During the launch, the Ministry of Health Director General of Health Services Dr. Henry Mwebesa extended words of gratitude and confidence in BLL’s role on the project.
He said, “We thank Beyond Logistics Ltd, who are the local agent representing the manufacturer of the equipment. They give us after-service guarantees and also help with the process of installation.”
As we start implementation of CCEOP Phase III, we are proud of the opportunity to once again partner with Haier, the Ministry of Health, GAVI, UNICEF and all other stakeholders to bring safe vaccines closer to our grassroots people.
In line with our mission, we have over the years implemented projects with various local and international partners, delivering exceptional service to positively impact client processes and local communities.
🔸BLL represented Haier Biomedical in the MOH / UNICEF CCEOP Gavi funded project for the local storage, distribution, installation and maintenance of 996 cold chain equipment to government and private health facilities in over 135 districts countrywide despite COVID-19 lockdowns. This has improved vaccine storage and immunisation coverage in Uganda. All project activities were done under stringent Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) standards. Some areas were hard-to-reach, located in islands and other remote areas with poor road networks, but the BLL team innovated ways of delivering the sensitive equipment up to the very last destination.
🔸For over seven years, BLL has received, stored and provided full inventory management and delivery services for ARVs and other sensitive medicines in our climate-controlled storage. This has enabled our client base of manufacturers and other service delivery organizations to focus on and excel at their core functions.
🔸BLL was subcontracted to design and execute a vaccines last-mile delivery pilot project in three Ugandan districts (Wakiso, Nakaseke and Nakasongola) under GAVI funding. This increased equitable distribution and reduced wastage of vaccines, leading to better immunization coverage of infants under five in the pilot districts.
🔸Beyond Logistics achieves 100% on-time and in-full procurement and delivery of a wide range of internationally and locally sourced medical male circumcision, maternal and child health care commodities countrywide under USAID funding. This has contributed to the fight against HIV/AIDS in Uganda.
🔸While procuring and delivering a wide range of emergency supplies for Ebola prevention on behalf of USAID Uganda, BLL’s quick response enabled health care providers in border districts to effectively implement emergency Ebola prevention activities.
