Then after all questions from the audience are answered by our expert panel, we move to a short bonus presentation by our second keynote speaker Mr. Frank Van Gelder, who has recently become one of five experts in a Think Tank for the Covid-19 vaccine distribution Task Force with the University of Antwerp. In his capacity as Senior Airfreight Consultant he will shine a light on the logistics behind shipping the Covid-19 vaccine all over the world.
