Nippon Express secures GDP certification for its warehouse near Paris CDG Airport
Nippon Express (NE) France, a local subsidiary of Tokyo based Nippon Express, on May 19 obtained Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification from the certification body Bureau Veritas Certification France.
The certificate will permit air and truck freight forwarding operations (including temporary storage services) at a company-owned warehouse located on the grounds of Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, evidencing its compliance with GDP standards for the proper distribution of pharmaceuticals.
France being the home to pharmaceutical giants and numerous prominent pharmaceutical research organizations, it has become a base for the development and manufacture of pharmaceutical products.
NE France's temperature-controlled facilities (total area: 100 m2) are equipped to maintain 2 - 8 degree C (refrigerated) and 15 - 25 degree C (fixed).
The temperature ranges within its warehouse will allow it to meet the logistics needs of customers in the pharmaceutical industry by combining temporary storage services using these facilities with Nippon Express's temperature-controlled international transport services.
Nippon Express will be further enhancing its services to meet increasingly sophisticated and diverse pharmaceutical logistics needs and bolstering its efforts on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry, positioned as a priority industry in its current business plan.
