This online platform will help facilitate communication between manufacturers, distributors and subcontractors and make protective items, which are vital in the fight against COVID-19, available to health professionals and public institutions.
Several French industrialists working in the detergent, chemical and cosmetic industries have begun manufacturing large amounts of hydroalcoholic gel (thousands of liters per day). This marketplace will allow the organization of the distribution chain by facilitating and streamlining the communication between producers (of raw materials), subcontractors (packaging manufacturers) as well as buyers (hospitals and clinics). For now, the platform is focused on hydroalcoholic gel. In the near future, it will offer other essential items such as masks, gloves and gowns to protect healthcare workers from contracting the disease and allow them to better assist their patients.
Philippe Corrot, the CEO of Mirakl, stated: “As a high-tech company, we examined all possibilities of how we could put our expertise to use to combat this unprecedented crisis. At Mirakl, we feel very lucky to be able to help French doctors and healthcare workers. We are committed to providing assistance to our fellow French and European citizens during this very difficult time. The goal behind this marketplace, which we set up in 48 hours, is to organize the value chain that has been implemented to respond to this crisis. The Mirakl teams have been working tirelessly to ensure that all product references are duly listed from the sectors committed to help cope with this situation.”
Mirakl wants to thank all of the manufacturers and distributors who have spontaneously set up production lines to ensure that hydroalcoholic gel is safely supplied and distributed throughout France.
