Cargolux renews GDP certification

Jan 17, 2017: Cargolux Airlines has renewed its Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification. Having passed its renewal audit, the certification is a testimony that the company’s management system has fulfilled the requirements of the EU directive ‘Guidelines on Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human Use’ and WHO guidelines.

In addition, the GDP certification recognizes Cargolux’s operation of a specialized fleet of Boeing 747 freighters with four independently-controlled temperature zones and its qualified team of cool chain experts, experienced in the handling of healthcare goods in an effective, end-to-end temperature controlled process.

“Cargolux is proud that its management system has successfully been audited based on the requirements of the EU Directive ‘GDP Guidelines of 05 November 2013 on Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human Use (2013/C 343/01),”said Franco Nanna, Cargolux Director Global Logistics Services and also Chairman of IATA’s Time and Temperature Task Force.

“At a micro level, we need to demonstrate at all times that we govern the ever growing sophisticated needs of the global healthcare supply chain pertinently and transparently. The GDP re-certification underlines Cargolux’s strong commitment to the safe and expedient movement of high value temperature sensitive healthcare goods across its global network. It also recognizes the company’s continuous drive for service quality that is much appreciated by customers and partners alike.”

Cargolux became the world’s first GDP certified airline in January 2014, confirming its compliance with EU GDP/WHO requirements and Cargolux’s dedication to operate a consistent quality management system across the transportation process. Cargolux’s hub at Luxembourg airport is also GDP certified.
