CEVA Logistics - one of the world's leading supply chain management companies – airlifted  more than 70 tonnes  of urgent supplies to Monrovia, Liberia on October 10th to assist in ongoing efforts to combat the West Africa Ebola outbreak.         
                               
The airlift was chartered by the U.S. Agency for International Development—the lead government agency coordinating U.S. Ebola response efforts—which has been working to expand the pipeline of medical equipment and supplies to the region.  Included in the shipment were infrared thermometers, disinfectant backpack sprayers, tents, and plastic fencing to be used in the construction of Ebola treatment units. The supplies were sourced by USAID from multiple locations around the world and delivered to CEVA Charter Services at Liege Airport (LGG) in Belgium. There, CEVA loaded the cargo onto a Global Africa Cargo MD-11 freighter aircraft for a direct flight to the Liberian capital of Monrovia.

"This was a really important charter, and we were honored to have been able to play a part in the Ebola response," said CEVA Logistics Corporate Account Manager Marc Burgard. "There were several challenges along the way because of the diverse locations of the  items involved, the urgency of the job and the number of time zones concerned, but the charter arrived safely in Liberia ."
