Nippon Express (India) newly acquires GDP certification at three locations

Nippon Express (India) Private Limited (P. Krishna Murthy, Managing Director; hereinafter, "NE India"), a local subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (Mitsuru Saito, President), obtained Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification in April for its temperature-controlled hubs in Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad, evidencing their compliance with GDP standards for the proper distribution of pharmaceuticals.

India has come to be known as "the world's pharmacy" in recent years, and pharmaceutical plants can be found scattered across the suburbs of the country's major cities. With the manufacturers of generics and other pharmaceuticals enjoying steady growth, India's pharmaceutical industry has rolled out countless products for the domestic market and rapidly expanded its exports. These efforts are forecast to expand in future.

In 2019, NE India acquired GDP certification for a temperature-controlled hub in Hyderabad handling international air cargo and, having newly obtained GDP certification for temperature-controlled hubs in Delhi, Mumbai, and Ahmedabad, it can now more extensively provide the safety and thorough quality control required for pharmaceutical transport. Moving forward, the company will continue expanding its pharmaceutical transport network in other regions hosting pharmaceutical plants.

Nippon Express remains committed to enhancing its services to meet increasingly sophisticated and diverse pharmaceutical logistics needs and to strengthening its efforts on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry, identified as a priority industry in the company's business plan.
