October 23, 2019: Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has been awarded with good distribution practice (GDP) certifications (ISO9001:2015) for its temperature-controlled pharma centres in Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa, making it first in the country to be granted this type of award.

Currently, WFS handles more than 65,000 tonnes of air cargo a year, including pharmaceuticals, for airline customers in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Pharma cargo volumes in South Africa have increased by 15 percent over the past two years. To cope with this increase in demand, WFS invested into its Johannesburg and Cape Town facilities and ultimately achieved GDP certification for both. The GDP certifications followed an audit of WFS’s cargo operations by DQS, a leading certification body for management systems worldwide.

This year, WFS also completed multi-million-euro investments into new pharma facilities at Copenhagen, Miami, New York JFK and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.
