Passing the COVID test

How Project Chorus helped distribute 11 million vaccines across New Zealand

Written by Suresh Vishnubhatla, Project Lead, Chorus

We started Project Chorus a few years ago to reimagine the way the world makes, moves and manages physical assets. The pandemic hit while we were exploring this space, and we felt the urgency of this work come into focus. Communities worldwide needed large quantities of perishable vaccines as fast as possible.

Our team wanted to help. We reached out to Healthcare Logistics (HCL), New Zealand’s leading pharmaceutical distributor, and offered to partner with them to get vaccines delivered quickly and safely. HCL and other cold chain logistics specialists all over the world were grappling with this unprecedented delivery challenge, which for New Zealanders included the management of 11 million critical vaccine doses.
