Rhenus Air & Ocean Denmark continues to target life sciences and healthcare sector with new GDP certification

Published: Friday, March 31, 2023

Rhenus Air & Ocean Denmark has obtained GDP certification as the company continues to target the life sciences and healthcare sector.

The certification confirms that the logistics specialist meets the European Union’s guidelines on good distribution practice for medicinal products for human use.

“This is only possible if all the processes along the supply chain are fully documented and a quality management system in line with the GDP guidelines has been introduced,” the forwarder said.

“Rhenus uses both these measures to check the supply chain for pharmaceutical products in order to ensure that the consignments do not suffer any damage during transportation, handling and storage.”

Late last year, the forwarder also obtained GDP certification at its site at Schiphol Airport and at its Frankfurt facility.

The standard specifies the conditions that a company must meet to have an accredited quality management system.

“Quality is the number one priority at Rhenus, which is why we apply the highest standards to our internal processes. Our experienced supply chain team is fully aware of the special standards required in the life sciences and healthcare sector and can introduce them in a suitably efficient manner for our customers,” said Ole Moller Hansen, the managing director of Rhenus Air & Ocean Denmark.
