UPS has provided more insight into its "unprecedented" collaboration with the federal government as it fights against the coronavirus epidemic, Louisville Business First reports.
United Parcel Service Inc. on Monday said it's coordinating with the president's Coronavirus Taskforce, FEMA and state health agencies to provide supply chain services for nationwide distribution of PPE, respirators, N95 masks, and gloves for use by healthcare workers. Advertisement
As part of the collaboration, FEMA will be able to use UPS’s Worldport facilities in Louisville, for temporary staging of critical shipments from overseas. UPS Spokesperson Steve Gaut said it's a piece of the public-private partnership the Trump Administration is calling Project Airbridge.
