The United States has begun distributing the vaccine, which is produced by the American company Pfizer in cooperation with Germany’s BioNTech SE, to hospitals and distribution centers. This is the largest such project since the end of World War II, given the need to store the vaccine at significant sub-zero temperatures.

Commercial passenger airlines have already joined in the transportation of the vaccine: American Airlines transported the first batch of vaccines from Chicago to Miami on December 13 on a Boeing 777-200 aircraft; earlier, United Airlines made a series of cargo flights to deliver the vaccine from Brussels to Chicago. The airline noted that one flight 777-200 can transport more than a million doses of the drug.

The largest American companies for express delivery of goods and mail – FedEx and UPS – are developing their own logistics schemes. Competitors are coordinating their actions, they have divided the territory of the United States in half in such a way that each will serve 25 states. FedEx said shipping the vaccine is a priority over commercial shipping during the Christmas and New Years season, with FedEx Express air fleet operations, while cargo and mail will be transported primarily by road.
