What’s the story: A UPS Healthcare facility in Fairdale, Kentucky, recently celebrated shipping its one billionth COVID-19 test kit. What used to be an empty warehouse prior to the pandemic was quickly transformed into an efficient operation with one goal – distribute COVID-19 test kits to the world.

Why it matters: This response to the pandemic shows how UPS’s investment in healthcare expertise and logistics is paying off. The UPS team is positioned to handle the most complex healthcare logistics and delivery needs.

What they’re saying: “We now have a clear roadmap to manage these events as they occur around the world,” said Dale Helton, UPS Healthcare senior operations manager. “I’m proud of everyone across UPS who came together to provide a best-in-class response to COVID.”
