Our Solution: Global Health Supply Chain

“We need a fundamental shift in the way we mobilize resources for health and human capital.”

The short-range expiry dates of medications and the specific transportation requirements of cold chain products – such as vaccinations, blood and pathology samples – are extremely problematic and incur significant socio-economic costs within the global public health system. These costs lead to a rise in the number of emergency trips taken to hospital, the overcrowding of district health facilities, and ultimately, an increase the rate of preventable illness and death which is currently evidenced across the globe.

Swoop Aero has developed an innovative
and technological solution.

We deploy safe, reliable and sustainable drone networks, which transform the global healthcare supply chain.

The Swoop Aero solution has an impact in the global health sector

On-demand and in-stock supplies

When an order is placed for essential health supplies – Swoop Aero can deliver it in less than 20 minutes. Swoop Aero secures universal availability to essential supplies for people who need it, when they need it.  As a result, we minimise the waste of low shelf life products and sensitive cold chain supplies that were previously kept for ‘just-in-case situations’. The service allows health systems to centralize emergency stocks, which means on-demand supplies can be mobilised across the network, fast enough to save millions of lives.

We adhere to International Standards

Swoop Aero has developed a transportation method that meets international regulatory and medical standards for cold chain and sensitive medical supply delivery, like vaccinations and blood samples. We deploy the same methods to maintain cold chain as the World Health Organisation. As a result, health care workers can focus exclusively on patient care and treatment rather than maintaining the conditions required to preserve the essential medical supplies.

An investment in the Swoop Aero network will improve efficiencies along
the health supply chain
