SINGAPORE: November 15, 2018. Panalpina has been awarded a Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification from Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority for its new logistics center - bringing the number of certified corporate locations globally to 32.

panalpina singaporeThe GDP quality assurance standard includes strict requirements for the handling, storage and distribution of pharmaceuticals and the company is now authorized to deliver medicines in the local market and to ship them internationally on behalf of pharmaceutical companies.

“The pharmaceutical sector in Singapore has developed enormously since 2000 and the companies are increasingly outsourcing the logistics for their highly sensitive products,” says Gino Marzola, Panalpina’s managing director for Singapore and Malaysia.

“Healthcare supply chains have a zero-fault tolerance, and the GDP certification for our brand-new facility demonstrates that we can meet that requirement. We also give pharmaceutical companies access to a global, quality distribution network for their products,” he added.

According to the Singapore Economic Development Board, eight of the top 10 pharma companies have a presence in the city-state and in 2016 produced products valued at over S$16 billion for global markets.
