After Bogotá in August, Panalpina has obtained another Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification, this time for its new logistics center in Singapore, where many of the world’s top pharmaceutical companies have manufacturing facilities. The GDP quality assurance standard includes stringent requirements for the handling, storage and distribution of pharmaceuticals. The number of Panalpina locations globally with GDP certification now stands at 32.
The GDP certificate was issued by Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority (HSA) following a rigorous inspection. To be granted GDP certification in Singapore, companies must demonstrate compliance with HSA GDP guidelines, which are based on the most important global guidelines. With the new GDP certification, Panalpina is authorized to store, handle and distribute medicines in the local market and to ship them abroad on behalf of pharmaceutical companies.
“The pharmaceutical sector in Singapore has developed enormously since 2000 and the companies
are increasingly outsourcing the logistics for their highly sensitive products,” says Gino Marzola, Panalpina’s managing director for Singapore and Malaysia. “Healthcare supply chains have a zero-fault tolerance, and the GDP certification for our brand-new facility demonstrates that we can meet that requirement. We also give pharmaceutical companies access to a global, quality distribution network for their products.”
