Avia Solutions Group Donates $2M for COVID-19 Vaccine Transportation

“Being one of the biggest aviation services group and a socially responsible humanitarian flights provider, we decided to solidarize with other large global companies. We have sent an official offer of $2M worth flight budget to the World Health Organization with an aim to help combat COVID-19. The support money shall be dedicated to transporting COVID-19 vaccines to highly infected places using the company’s aircraft fleet – Dornier 228, Boeing 747-400F, B737-400F and Airbus A321,” says Mr. Vygaudas Usackas, Ambassador and Member of the Board of Directors of Avia Solutions Group.

Avia Solutions Group is the biggest integrated aviation service provider in the world with up to 50% of its flights being humanitarian. The company currently controls the operations of Chapman Freeborn, Bluebird Nordic and Avion Express, which together achieve around 10 000 flight hours per month performing medical aid flights, repatriation, United Nations World Food Programme missions and other high-demand services.

“Today, the demand for cargo transportation rapidly increased, followed by the prices becoming 2-3 times higher. Some areas are facing issues for cargo transportation as the waiting time for large cargo or cargo to difficult areas can be as long as 2-3 weeks. As a Group, we want to be sure that once the vaccine is invented, its transportation to areas, which need it most, will have been solved in advance,” Mr. Vygaudas added.

According to certain sources, today, more than 70 vaccines are being tested, and their certification procedures has already started. While the timeframe for approval processes is from late October 2020 to mid-2021, the vaccine transportation will most likely be needed in March – April 2021.

Kenan Advantage Group – Tank Truck Transporters & Logistics Provider

💭 Tim Tibbs, Director of Operations East

#KAGStory

“Here in Bethlehem, we have been supplying Oxygen to the hospitals in New York City and New Jersey. All of our drivers have stepped up their game and have gone above and beyond without question.

Two drivers, in particular, have shared stories with me that made them feel something they never felt before.”

1️⃣ Tim Barnes was delivering in New York City and the fire department was clearing a call. When they noticed our truck coming down the street, they stood together and clapped and gave our driver a thumbs up because they knew he was delivering Oxygen to the hospitals.

Tim said, “As I drive by the firehouse, I look at them as heroes and when they cheered as I drove by, I felt like I was the hero. I was honored to have them do that. It made me feel like everything we are doing is worth it.”

2️⃣ Corey Koerner shared a story of a doctor coming out in full PPE as he was leaving finishing his delivery at the hospital. The doctor asked if he was there to deliver Oxygen. When he replied that the delivery had already been made and he is on his way out, she began to jump with joy. Corey stated, “It made me feel good to know that what I am doing is appreciated by the ones needing it.”

Tim closed by stating, “Although truck drivers are not usually looked at as being in the same class as public servants such as fire, EMS, or doctors, without our drivers doing what they do, those services would not be able to operate.

Others that need recognition through this are the Mechanics that are keeping the equipment running. Without them, the entire system can shut down.

I just want to end in saying I am very proud of the team in Bethlehem, and KAG, as a whole for stepping up through this crisis.”

Together we are #KAGStrong.

The Volvo Group and Daimler Truck AG to Lead the Development of Sustainable Transportation by Forming Joint Venture for Large-scale Production of Fuel Cells

GÖTEBORG, Sweden, April 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Sharing the Green Deal vision of sustainable transport and a carbon neutral Europe by 2050, two leading companies in the commercial vehicle industry, Daimler Truck AG and the Volvo Group, have signed a preliminary non-binding agreement to establish a new joint venture. The intention is to develop, produce and commercialize fuel cell systems for heavy-duty vehicle applications and other use cases. Daimler will consolidate all its current fuel cell activities in the joint venture. The Volvo Group will acquire 50% in the joint venture for the sum of approximately EUR 0.6 billion on a cash and debt free basis. 

“Transport and logistics keep the world moving, and the need for transport will continue to grow. Truly CO2-neutral transport can be accomplished through electric drive trains with energy coming either from batteries or by converting hydrogen on board into electricity. For trucks to cope with heavy loads and long distances, fuel cells are one important answer and a technology where Daimler has built up significant expertise through its Mercedes-Benz fuel cell unit over the last two decades. This joint initiative with the Volvo Group is a milestone in bringing fuel cell powered trucks and buses onto our roads,” says Martin Daum, Chairman of the Board of Management Daimler Truck AG and Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG.

“Electrification of road transport is a key element in delivering the so called Green Deal, a carbon neutral Europe and ultimately a carbon neutral world. Using hydrogen as a carrier of green electricity to power electric trucks in long-haul operations is one important part of the puzzle, and a complement to battery electric vehicles and renewable fuels. Combining the Volvo Group and Daimler’s experience in this area to accelerate the rate of development is good both for our customers and for society as a whole. By forming this joint venture, we are clearly showing that we believe in hydrogen fuel cells for commercial vehicles. But for this vision to become reality, other companies and institutions also need to support and contribute to this development, not least in order to establish the fuel infrastructure needed,” says Martin Lundstedt, Volvo Group President and CEO. 

The Volvo Group and Daimler Truck AG will be 50/50 partners in the joint venture, which will operate as an independent and autonomous entity, with Daimler Truck AG and the Volvo Group continuing to be competitors in all other areas of business. Joining forces will decrease development costs for both companies and accelerate the market introduction of fuel cell systems in products used for heavy-duty transport and demanding long-haul applications. In the context of the current economic downturn cooperation has become even more necessary in order to meet the Green Deal objectives within a feasible time-frame.

The common goal is for both companies to offer heavy-duty vehicles with fuel cells for demanding long-haul applications in series production in the second half of the decade. In addition, other automotive and
