Logistics4Pharma, a pharmaceutical logistics and cold chain specialist, has recently completed GDP certification and ISO 9001:2015 quality management certifications for its Frankfurt, Germany cold chain storage and logistics facility. It also achieved the status of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) which certifies the facility operates at the highest level of security and provide customers with the benefits of customs simplification procedures.
These advances follow a recent completion of a successful inspection from German Authorities validating compliance with good distribution practice (GDP) regulations for the storage and transportation of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and finished drug products. Logistics4Pharma has also passed a recent audit from the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt (LBA) renewing Regulated Agent status under the supervision of the German Aviation Administration.
“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen deep impacts across the supply chain which have been further exacerbated by global storage and transportation challenges,” said Kees Schmidt, Head of Operations at Logistics4Pharma. “While our team was already working to high standards and expanding its services pre-pandemic, these trends amplified the urgency of our efforts. We will continue to strengthen our compliance and commercial solutions to deliver deeper value to our European customers looking for a reliable cold-chain packaging, storage, and logistics partner in Frankfurt and around the world.”
Logistics4Pharma offers solutions tailored to meet individual customer needs, with a range for warehousing options (-15 to -25 DegC, 2 to 8 Deg C and 15 to 25 DegC), passive and active packaging solutions, transportation by air, land and sea, documentation, and customs clearance for active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), dangerous goods, and finished drug products. There are further plans to enhance the offer at the Frankfurt facility and include ultra-deep freeze capacity (-80 DegC) in the coming 12 months.
The company will be onsite in booth 18H12 at CPhI Worldwide from November 9 to 11, Italy.
