Les 150.000 camions de la chaîne du froid française se préparent à planifier l'acheminement des millions de doses de vaccin contre le coronavirus. Un défi de taille, même pour cette puissante filière, au vu de l'ampleur du trafic, qui reste pour l'heure difficilement quantifiable avec précision. © AFP The 150,000 trucks in the French cold chain are preparing to plan the delivery of millions of doses of vaccine against the coronavirus. A sizeable challenge, even for this powerful industry, given the scale of the traffic, which for the time being remains difficult to quantify with precision.

The refrigerated road transport sector is preparing. While the High Authority of Health (HAS) unveiled on Monday its recommendations for the vaccine strategy in France against the coronavirus , it is now the question of logistics that arises. Because once the vaccines have been purchased from the various laboratories, they will have to be made accessible to the French, while sometimes transporting them at -70 degrees Celsius. If France has one of the most developed cold chain sectors in the world, with 150,000 trucks, the sector is facing a major challenge.

Covid-19: the secrets of the government task force preparing the arrival of the vaccine

A vaccine for the new year? This is not yet a reality; but no longer quite a dream. If Olivier Véran cultivates these days prudence and discretion on this burning issue, some kingpins of the Ministry of Health are now assuring, in off-duty, that the mission is not impossible. It must be said that time is accelerating.

The cold chain process begins with the cold storage unit at the manufacturing plant, extends through transport of the vaccine to the distributor , followed Considering the number of steps involved and their complexity, it is easy to see how errors can occur. In general, the success of the cold chain is

A sector accustomed to extreme temperatures ...

But the professionals assure it, they are ready. "We already have the equipment", explains to the microphone of Europe 1 Gérald Cavalier, boss of Cémafroid, a company which certifies the refrigerators of refrigerated trucks. "In these vehicles, you can set a temperature of -20 degrees Celsius and transport to -70 degrees Celsius." Especially since the industry is used to this transport in extreme temperatures, it already does so every day. "For ice cream it's -20 °, for tuna -70 °", he explains.

Still, the big difference between fish and vaccine doses is above all the extent of trafficking. This data is still unknown, since the precise number of doses to be transported remains to be determined. But with 1 refrigerated truck for 450 inhabitants, France is 26 times better endowed than China, for example. There will therefore be no break, promises Jean-Eudes Tesson, president of the Refrigeration Logistics Chain.

But it asks the government on the other hand to specify at most quickly the places of storage and vaccination. "It is not the same thing to deliver a general practitioner in a small village than a big hospital, we are not going to use a semi-trailer! That is why we need precise information in the days who come."

In the meantime, what is emerging for the first phase is transport to the main hospitals and then redistribution to nursing homes in smaller vehicles. A system that should make it possible to start the first phase of vaccination on seniors, as recommended by the HAS.

TV money: Leki regrets the lack of an efficiency criterion .
In a kicker interview in mid-September, Oliver Leki brought a kind of efficiency rate into play as a new parameter for distributing the TV money. Such a component is missing from the new distribution key despite the personal commitment of the Freiburg executive board, who as a DFL executive committee member was directly involved in the decision. © imago images Could not get his suggestion through: Freiburg board member Oliver Leki.
