– Rahul Agarwal, MD, Kool-Ex Cold Chain
Kool-Ex is one of the largest pharmaceutical cold chain logistic service providers in the country. The logistic veteran with over 25 years in the industry has been at the forefront to deliver corona virus vaccines and anti-viral drugs from manufacturers to pan-India locations. “Our workforce has been active round-the-clock since the beginning of the pandemic, first for essential medicines and since the turn of 2021 to move vaccines across India & neighbouring countries followed by Remdesevir and Tocimilazub. Kool-Ex remains a leader in carrying vaccines from the manufacturers to pan-India government depots and private hospitals,” shares Rahul Agarwal, Managing Director, Kool-Ex Cold Chain Ltd.
In the process, Kool-Ex has managed to deliver 11 crore doses across India to important locations assigned by the Government of India. “After trucks were inspected and cleared by Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways and MSME, Nitin Gadkari, Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray and Aditya Thackeray, we were extremely pumped up and confident of our manpower and assets. It boosted us for the massive task ahead as we ventured on this mission for end-to-end distribution of ‘Made in India’ vaccines. What further humbled us and amplified our efforts towards our work was the gesture from common citizens showering our trucks with flowers & prayers. The trucks carrying vaccines and flaunting our tricolour made every journey and man hours on the truck worthwhile for our drivers and managing staff,” Agarwal says.
