Against all odds, hundreds of millions of effective COVID-19 vaccines are now being shipped worldwide. The next enormous challenge on par with the development of these vaccines is the supply chain logistics required to get the many millions of doses from the factory to the billions of people who need it – safely and in a timely matter.  

Perhaps not since the time of WWII has Canada seen the need for the flawless delivery of essential goods – with the added caveat of extreme levels of safety -- for the fragile vaccines. Who will do what and how will be accomplished? A panel of Waterloo Engineering experts, from both industry and academia, share their expertise in the prioritization and delivery of this massive undertaking.
