Nippon Express (H.K.) Co., Ltd. (Masaaki Kajii, President; hereinafter, "NEHK"), a local subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (Mitsuru Saito, President), obtained Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification effective Thursday, September 30 for its company-owned warehouse adjacent to Hong Kong's container terminal and for its transport services, evidencing its compliance with GDP standards for the proper distribution of pharmaceuticals.

Nippon Express remains committed to enhancing its services to meet the increasingly sophisticated and diversified pharmaceutical transport needs of its customers, and the Company will continue to strengthen its efforts on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry, identified as a priority industry in its Medium-term Business Plan.
