Munich’s first GDP pharma certificate awarded to Cargogate
Dec 20, 2018: In September 2018, German audit company DQS GmbH has awarded cargo handler Cargogate with GDP (Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human Use – 2013/C 343/01) certification.
Cargogate, a 100 percent subsidiary of Munich Airport since 1974, receives Munich’s first GDP certificate. Cargogate functions as a service provider for airlines that carry freight but do not maintain their own warehouse facilities at Munich Airport.
The GDP certificate is a European standard for handling medical products.
“We are a reliable link in the supply chain that keeps these medicines effective,” noted Claudia Weidenbusch, managing director of Cargogate.
Cargogate also serves as a strategic partner handling temperature-controlled containers for Envirotainer.
Weidenbusch commented, “Together with these containers and our GDP-certified facilities and standards we ensure delivery of the best possible service to our customers.”
