COVID19: The #SupplyChain4Good community organises the delivery of protective visors to the IHU in Strasbourg

PRESS RELEASE 

Paris, Aprl 9th, 2020

The SupplyChain4Good initiative enables the delivery of 1,650 protective visors and valve connectors for respirators to the Strasbourg IHU.

To fight the Covid19 virus, the Supply Chain is more than ever at the heart of a France that is organising itself in the face of this unprecedented situation. Routing of basic foodstuffs and medical equipment: supply chains are becoming progressively tighter, less reliable and more vulnerable. However, the maintenance, solidity and security of these priority supply chains are becoming vital.

In this context, Movin’On and ASLOG, who are working on sustainable mobility solutions for goods through the SupplyChain4Good community, could not remain inactive. For several weeks now, part of the community has been organising the matching of available logistics capacities with the needs of the actors who are on the front line (hospitals, food distribution and basic necessities…).

In just a few weeks, this solidarity system made it possible to centralize, via a dedicated email, the needs as well as the available capacities. All requests are centralised and a team is in charge of consolidating them and then communicating with the right players.

As part of this initiative, the #SupplyChain4Good community made it possible, between 1st and 6th April, to send 1,650 protective visors printed in 3D to the IHU in Strasbourg.

On March 30, Luckylink, a company working on solidarity initiatives against coronavirus, contacted ASLOG via the dedicated email address (urgences@aslog.fr) to find a partner in the delivery of protective visors manufactured in 3D to the IHU in Strasbourg.

As part of the SupplyChain4Good initiative, Fabien Esnoult, member of the ASLOG Board of Directors, SupplyChain4Good project coordinator and President of SprintProject, put him in contact with Ahmed Chaieb, Founder of Box2Home, the solution for express delivery, assembly and installation of bulky products.

Following this connection and between 1st and 6th April, Box2Home collects from the companies Alchimies (Dieuze) and PIM Industrie (Marckolsheim) more than 1650 protective visors and makes the delivery to the IHU of Strasbourg. A detour to the home of a private individual was also organized, in order to recover a donation of valve connectors, intended for respirators, manufactured with his personal 3D printer.

#SupplyChain4Good

The #SupplyChain4Good community was created at the initiative of Michelin and ASLOG, as part of the Movin’On ecosystem, in favor of a more sustainable mobility of goods.

#SupplyChain4Good’s ambition is to bring together players working for Supply Chains that are simultaneously good for the planet, for people and for business performance.

Members of this community are “shippers” (industrial and commercial companies), “operators” (transporters, logisticians, shipping companies, ports…), “support functions” (academics, consultants, information systems, regulators, NGOs…). They cover all economic sectors and all regions of the world. Their work takes place throughout the year and culminates in the annual Movin’On Summit, the world summit on sustainable mobility.
