DHL Express supports hospital pharmacies
DHL Express Germany is supporting the federal association of German hospital pharmacists (Bundesverband Deutscher Krankenhausapotheker) in its fight to contain the spread of the corona virus. To this end, the company is transporting up to 4 t of glycerin and 35,000 l hydrogen peroxide for the production of disinfectants for 340 hospital pharmacies nationwide and free of charge.
This measure is but one of many initiatives with which DHL Express is helping to keep supply chains going particularly for products urgently needed by medical technology and pharmaceutical companies in their efforts to combat the corona crisis.
After DHL Express has delivered the requested quantity of the individual components to the hospital pharmacies, the pharmacies then produce the disinfectants on site by adding ethanol and make them available to the hospitals. (mw)
