There has been remarkable growth in Singapore's pharmaceutical/medical industries, one of the sectors being promoted on a priority basis by the country, and many of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies have set up research, development and manufacturing locations there in what is fast becoming an industrial cluster. Accordingly, pharmaceutical import/export demand utilizing Changi Airport, which is increasingly distinguishing itself as a user-friendly free trade port, is expected to rise in future.

With this GDP certification, NE Singapore will have in place a system to provide safe and high-quality air import/export services for pharmaceuticals that leverages the benefits of being the only Japanese logistics company with a facility within the airport's bonded area.

By improving its infrastructure and obtaining certification at major business locations in Singapore and elsewhere, Nippon Express will be creating pharmaceutical logistics services using its global network to provide high value-added air transport services that meet the sophisticated and diversified needs of customers in the pharmaceutical industry.
