Swiss WorldCargo consolide sa vision de réseau certifié avec la re-validation GDP de son hub de Zurich

Le hub de Swiss WorldCargo réaffirme son leadership pour la manutention de fret pharmaceutique. En septembre 2017, Swissmedic, l'Institut suisse des produits thérapeutiques, a renouvelé la certification GDP (Goods Distribution Practice) de Cargologic, partenaire handling de Swiss WorldCargo à Zurich. Cargologic figure parmi les premiers à avoir été certifié GDP en 2014, suivi de la certification CEIV (Center of Excellence for Independent Validators) délivrée par l’ IATA en 2015.

Depuis maintenant deux ans, Swiss WorldCargo s’est attaché à reproduire ce modèle de certification sur l’ensemble de son réseau, en étroite collaboration avec ses partenaires au sol. Ainsi, un réseau de routes certifiées a été mis en place, visant à répondre aux normes de qualité les plus strictes et à assurer l'intégrité des produits de la chaîne du froid à l'échelle mondiale. D'ici la fin de l'année 2017, quelque 50 «couloirs de qualité» seront en place, reliant les principales destinations pharma.

Swiss WorldCargo envisage également d'étendre sa participation au programme Envirotainer QEP (Qualified Envirotainer Provider). Ce dernier reconnait les compétences des transporteurs affiliés en matière de handling des solutions proposées par Envirotainer. 30 stations ont déjà obtenu cette certification, et d’autres la recevront dans les mois à venir.

Swiss WorldCargo a également élargi son offre de manutention de produits pharma avec l'introduction du stockage à température contrôlée «ERT» dans ses principales destinations pharma.
