Supply Chains Differ greatly by industry, but if there is one supply chain we have all been watching closely over the last year, it is the healthcare supply chain. During this time, UPS has been on a noble mission - playing an active role in distributing PPE, test kits, vaccines, and other necessarily materials despite the disruption caused by the pandemic. They have partnered with the government in addition to working with private industry, leveraging their air, road, and storage capabilities as needed.

Dan Gagnon is the Vice President of Global UPS Healthcare Marketing and Strategy and Tim Fosnough is the Senior Director of UPS Global Freight Forwarding. They have each played a direct role in this effort, finding ways to scale up quickly, using their own resources as well as working through trusted third-party partnerships to increase their capacity for cold chain logistics.

In this conversation, Dan and Tim join hosts Scott Luton and Greg White to share their stories of struggle and success:

• The three key innovations that UPS either unveiled or strengthened in order to support the pandemic effort

• Investments UPS has made to expand their healthcare-specific transportation and storage capabilities

• The pride associated with realizing that the work they were doing on a daily basis was making a difference to people in the U.S. and abroad
