Envirotainer Ground Services Award

Ensuring the safe delivery of Pharmaceuticals needs to be at the heart of all stakeholders in temperature-controlled air cargo logistics. 

It is a complex process with many hand-offs across the whole chain, often touching multiple countries on its way to the final destination. The ability to early on identify risks helps pharmaceutical companies in their quest to get the vital medicines to the right place, at the right time and in the right condition. Training of cold chain stakeholders is key to providing consistent services and fulfilling Good Distribution Practices (GDP) regulations.

How to locate a qualified logistics partner

As cold chain stakeholders, it is important that we understand that for product quality to be ensured, an unbroken cold chain must be maintained. Since people are an integral part of the cold chain, Good Distribution Practice (GDP) guidelines have made it clear that the training and education of ground service providers are essential.

Given this increased focus on the competence of ground service providers, and at the request of industry stakeholders, the Envirotainer Ground Services Award was created. This award serves to both recognize those organizations that meet their GDP training obligations and to further promote the education of ground service providers.

How to achieve the Envirotainer Ground Services Award
