Thailand Post Distribution teams up with THAI to deliver vaccines


Thailand Post Distribution (THPD) has joined hands with Thai Airways International Plc (THAI) to deliver Covid-19 vaccines via its vast country-wide logistics network.

The two companies signed a memorandum of understanding on Tuesday to cooperate in delivering Covid-19 vaccines to both domestic and overseas destinations.

“The THPD will use this opportunity of working with THAI to improve our logistics and warehousing systems as we aim to be certified under ISO9001 and the Good Storage Practice standards,” said THPD managing director Pheera Udomkitsakul.

“We also hope this campaign will expand into future cooperation between the THPD and THAI in selling and distributing foods and products of both companies to a wider audience,” he said.

Pheera said the THPD currently has a modern warehouse management system and has been operating cold storage warehouses of international standard, thus making it an ideal candidate in handling the delivery of drugs and medical supplies.

“Our delivery staff have been trained under GDP [good delivery practices] to ensure on-time deliveries and have received the Q-Mark certification, which has been issued by the Department of Land Transport as a service quality standard for truck operations,” he added.
