Responding to guarantee Caribbean food security
The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in the region has impacted in a positive manner to resolve former regulatory hurdles. As governments recognize the urgent need for food and personal protective equipment (PPE), SwiftPac has been called upon to move live baby chicks, PPE, medical equipment, masks and hand sanitizers between the countries of the subregion.
“ … SwiftPac is taking its place in the transport of packages, perishable products and live baby chicks between Barbados and Grenada, Dominica, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Antigua Barbuda, St. Kitts Nevis and Tortola. This is happening at a time when the need to ensure food security and increased flexibility to respond to the needs of the countries and markets is critical. “
This means investment in specialized equipment such as refrigerated trucks and warehouse equipment where SwiftPac/InterPrime operates in the region to facilitate that kind of operation.
