FedEx bulks up cold storage facilities for vaccines in Singapore

Transporting COVID-19 shots 'most important job,' company says

Fedex will employ a system that uses sensors to monitor temperature, humidity and other conditions of goods being transported.

SINGAPORE -- FedEx has beefed up its cold chain facilities in Singapore in response to growing demand in Southeast Asia for COVID-19 vaccines, which need to be stored at subzero temperatures.

Transporting vaccines is one of the most important jobs in the company's history, Audrey Cheong, managing director at FedEx Express Singapore, told reporters on Thursday.
