MVD Free Airport sets-up regional distribution platform for Covid-19 protective gear

 

With private organizations taking all possible measures to fight the global pandemic, many are finding benefit in setting up nearshore operations at MVD Free Airport to mitigate risk, cost and lead times. Currently 300.000 protective masks have been shipped from Asia in one single long haul hub for the distribution of protective equipment to 7 countries across Latin America, with MVD Free Airport preparing the shipments to each country and destination in an agile cross-docking operation.

Cargo arrives in single boxes, is palletized and shipments prepared according to specific client instructions in a lean operation meant to achieve the desired results most efficiently. This has presented significant challenges that have tested the flexibility and resilience of the team, and the results are a matter of pride for the organization as a whole.

 

MVD Free Airport is part of Corporación America, the parent Company that also manages the concessions of the Carrasco International Airport and Punta Del Este Airport in Uruguay, alongside over 50 airports and 10 cargo terminals in 10 countries across 3 continents.

MVD Free Airport is a business unit of Corporación America, the largest airport operator in the world with a network of over 50 airports across 3 continents.
