Nippon Express has obtained IATA’s Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification for its temperature-controlled pharma logistics hub at Japan’s Kansai International Airport.

The company said that it is the first air cargo forwarder in Japan to operate a GDP-certified facility at Kansai Airport.

Logistics giant Nippon will use the Kansai facility in conjunction with the group’s GDP-certified temperature-controlled hub at Narita Airport to provide “safe and high-quality pharmaceutical logistics platforms at two of Japan’s gateway airports”.

NX Group, the renamed Nippon Express parent company, said in a statement that it will continue stepping up its initiatives in the pharma industry, which it has identified as a priority sector in its business plan.

The Group added that it is “globally enhancing and expanding its services to meet the increasingly sophisticated and diversified pharmaceutical logistics needs of its customers”.
