Vallis provides a range of services at strategic points along the supply chain to mitigate risk. Here follows a summary of our most recent operations:
Solar Panel Fridge Inspections – Guinea
Vallis Supply Chain Assurance Services (SCAS) was appointed by an International Development Organization to assist in delivering safe storage of cold-chain pharmaceuticals.
Our in-country staff performed a series of post-installation inspections on solar panel fridges and their related cold chain equipment (CCE) across 27 health care facilities in Guinea within a 3-week period. This was followed by 24-hour photographic reporting per fridge, per site, and was coordinated from our headquarters in the UK.
The sites were dispersed over several hundred square miles, requiring precise logistical to meet the schedule set by the client.
Vallis delivered its consistently reliable and high standard of reporting whilst continually liaising with the client to ensure expectations were met.
Site Inspection and Damage Assessment – Mozambique
In March 2019, Cyclone Idai ripped through Madagascar, Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. Severe flooding and strong winds created significant damage to the infrastructure, causing a severe impact on the community.
Storage facilities, equipment and stock were damaged or lost in the cyclone and once Idai had subsided, Vallis SCAS was appointed by a global private company to conduct site inspections and assess the level of damage to their warehouses and stock. Over the course of a week, we meticulously worked through the stock at all sites and provided detailed, photographic reports to the client.
Pharmaceutical and Non-Pharmaceutical Goods Inspections – Northern Nigeria
Vallis was appointed by an International Development Organization to assist in delivering a UK Government initiative: a 5-year programme aimed at improving perinatal and child mortality rates in northern Nigeria, by providing quality care from pre-pregnancy through to early infancy.
Vallis SCAS provided post-shipment inspections of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical goods and reported our findings back to the client. Vallis inspected containers for security and reviewed the transportation conditions. We established if cold-chain integrity had been maintained for temperature sensitive products. We supervized in the offloading of shipments and checked packing lists for completion, specifically looking at aspects such as correct branding and product expiration. We also verified that correctly qualified personnel were on site to sign for controlling products.
All deliveries were Vallis attended and summarized with a photographic report to the client giving detailed findings.
