Nippon Express (NEN), a local subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd., obtained Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification effective September 6 for its company-owned warehouse in Schiphol Trade Park near Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, evidencing its compliance with GDP standards for the proper distribution of pharmaceuticals.
The Netherlands has become a hub of biotechnology companies, with the country’s geographical and tax advantages have allowed numerous pharmaceutical manufacturers to set up logistics bases there.
NEN’s warehouse near Schiphol Airport, an import/export gateway for Europe, is equipped with dedicated pharmaceutical storage areas with temperature-control functions for three temperature ranges – 15ºC to 25ºC (constant-temperature storage), 2ºC to 8ºC (refrigerated storage) and -15ºC to -25ºC (frozen storage) – as well as truck docks, enabling NEN to enhance its pharmaceutical transport services to meet anticipated increases in demand.
