China's pharmaceutical market, the world's second largest, is enjoying steady expansion driven by an aging society, increasing per capita income and consequently rising medical spending, and further growth is anticipated in future.

The GDP certification obtained by NE China for its Shanghai Pudong Airport CFS covers a full range of import arrangements extending from the arrival of import air cargo at the airport to customs clearance and bonded outbound shipment, and NE China uses an dedicated refrigerated facility belonging to Eastern Air Logistics Co., Ltd., that offers temperature-controlled storage in two temperature ranges: 2ºC-8ºC (refrigerated) and 15ºC-25ºC (room-temperature).

Nippon Express will continue enhancing its services to meet ever more sophisticated and diverse pharmaceutical logistics needs, and strengthening its initiatives on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry, positioned as a priority industry in the Company's management plan.
