Uruguay and MVD FA recognized globally for vaccine strategy against COVID-19

The COVID-19 distribution strategy developed in Uruguay has been showcased as a successful case study for the industry by Pharma.Aero. At MVD Free Airport, we are proud of developing this innovative operation that reduced risks, costs and lead times.


Uruguay became the only country in the world to use its airport, Aeropuerto de Carrasco as a reception, storage, preparation and distribution facility for vaccines, so that they could arrive in a quick and efficient manner to the vaccination centers and final patient. The work alongside the National Health Ministry, Pharma.Aero, MVD Free Airport and Brussels Airport Company has been key to achieve this historic operation for our country.


The solution was made viable in great part given the world-class cold chain infrastructure at MVD Free Airport as well as its extensive know-how in the handling, storage and distribution of pharmaceutical products to the region. MVD is currently providing different regional distribution services to Brazil, Argentina and the rest of the region leading global players in the pharmaceutical industry.


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.
