Voice Mail’s first episode tells the story behind the delivery of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Thomas Ellmann, Vice-President, Life Sciences and Healthcare at Deutsche Post DHL Group discusses how the group supports distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, and the sheer magnitude of this global effort.
Co-presenter Ian Kerr said:
‘The global postal network has helped us stay connected during the pandemic. And now the delivery sector is at the forefront of distributing vaccines. ‘There are so many stories that show how important the postal sector is to communities. Posties and post offices are everywhere, and are part of society’s fabric. I’m looking forward to sharing more postal stories in future episodes of Voice Mail.’
Voice Mail is now on Spotify, Podbean and other podcast hosting services.
