Nippon Foundation's Transportation of Oxygen Concentrators to India
Jul. 14, 2021
Kintetsu World Express (headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo) is proud to announce the successful delivery of 100 oxygen concentrators—manufactured by Air Water Inc.—to Manipur, India in cooperation with the humanitarian aid organization Nippon Foundation.
Bordered by Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Bhutan, Manipur is located approximately 2,500 km east of Delhi. Despite deteriorating road conditions and the onset of monsoon season, land transportation via Delhi Airport offered greater visibility and control in comparison to domestic air transfer, which ran the risk of damage and loss due to heavy demand and lead time management.
On June 21, the oxygen concentrators left Japan via carrier All Nippon Airways, arriving at Delhi Airport on the same day, where they were loaded into a truck to depart Delhi promptly on June 24. During transportation, the units were monitored continuously via GPS, reaching their final destination in Manipur province on June 29.
We will continue to fulfill our corporate social responsibility in the global fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
