DHL Global Forwarding Partners with Longhorn Vaccines & Diagnostics


DHL Global Forwarding has partnered with Longhorn Vaccines & Diagnostics, a company focused on serving unmet critical needs in both developed and developing nations, to deliver much-needed Covid-19 testing vials to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Kenya, Nepal and the Philippines.

Longhorn is donating one million tubes of its PrimeStore Molecular Transport Medium (MTM) in an effort to increase the safety and efficacy of Covid-19 testing of refugees and displaced persons in the three countries.

“During these challenging times, nothing is more important than safeguarding and delivering much-needed Covid-19 vaccines and testing capabilities across the world to fight this pandemic,” said David Goldberg, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding US. “We at DHL have a long-standing history in partnering with companies who believe in the power of ‘connecting people, improving lives,’ and these deliveries are another example of where we have the expertise, capabilities and network to help safely and efficiently.”

“Once we coordinated the donation of one million PrimeStore MTM sample collection devices with the IOM, we needed to manage the logistics of such a large endeavor,” stated Jeff Fischer President of Longhorn Vaccines and Diagnostics. “PrimeStore MTM inactivates SARS-CoV-2 during collection and transit, which can reduce the need for safety cabinets and reduce the time between collection and results. With the need to ship to different countries on multiple continents and traverse to varied customs requirements, DHL was the clear choice given the importance of reliable transportation in the testing process.”
