Airlift for medical protective equipment
For this purpose, the sports car manufacturer has put together a task force with six employees from the Procurement department and is organising the supply chains of urgently needed protective equipment in China on behalf of the state governments.
Together with the logistics partners DB Schenker and Lufthansa Cargo, Porsche is ensuring problem-free transport of protective masks, goggles and protective suits from Shanghai to Germany. Here, the state governments of Saxony and Baden-Württemberg take over distribution of the protective equipment so that it can be used to prevent the spread of coronavirus in hospitals, emergency services and other institutions.
Since the flights started, several million protective items (face masks of different protection classes, protective suits and protective goggles) have arrived at the intermediate warehouse in Stuttgart. By probably the end of May, protective materials with a value running into triple-digit millions of euros will have been organised and transported from China to Germany.
