December 15, 2020

Cardinal Health has been selected by the Ohio Department of Health to support its efforts to distribute COVID-19 vaccines by arranging transportation within the state of Ohio.

Once a vaccine is available and Ohio receives doses for in-state distribution, Cardinal Health’s OptiFreight® Logistics* business will provide same-day delivery services to approximately 350 locations across 88 counties.

The state of Ohio currently expects initial vaccine doses to require special handling and temperature control, and OptiFreight® Logistics will leverage its expertise in managing the transportation of sensitive products to ensure safe, successful delivery.

“We are proud to provide our services to support our home state,” said Steve Mason, CEO of Medical segment, Cardinal Health. “A fully coordinated supply chain is critical to getting Americans safely vaccinated, and Cardinal Health is uniquely positioned to support Ohio’s vaccination efforts so we can collectively begin to put COVID-19 behind us.”

*A division of Cardinal Health, OptiFreight® Logistics provides freight management across the continuum of care, delivering total transportation management for the healthcare industry. As a premier comprehensive logistics management provider, OptiFreight® Logistics anticipates healthcare customers’ needs to help them optimize shipping costs through advanced analytics and integrated shipping solutions
