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
Any organization that provides ground services to the healthcare industry is eligible for the award, including trucking, warehousing, ramp handling, customs, and freight forwarding.
Along with promoting your organization on our website, any station that receives this award will also receive a certificate from Envirotainer for you to display in your office.
In order to receive this award, your station or office must show records that demonstrate:
- Staff who handle Envirotainer containers have been trained accordingly
- Staff have received training on Good Distribution Practices
- Training should be completed by, who handle Envirotainer containers and their Managers.
Note: Additional training is required if your organization also perform container loading services.
