PT Yusen Logistics Indonesia has become the first logistics business in Indonesia to acquire GDP certification, the industry standard of quality for the storage and transport of medical and pharmaceutical products in July.
PT Yusen Logistics Indonesia has been handling pharmaceutical and medical devices more than 10 years, transferring high value, temperature sensitive products all over the world through Yusen Logistics’ European Pharma Network. With demand for advanced quality rising, the Company has invested in acquiring GDP(*) certification to verify the quality of its services to customers.
Yusen Indonesia can now assure customers that transportation quality and shipment safety is being met through strict compliance with GDP guidelines; insured by regular inspections and systematic staff training.
The Company's Pharma shipping service employs company-owned vehicles with temperature control capability and real-time GPS tracking. Delivery routes are finalized after assessment of transportation risks, with implemented temperature mapping and monitoring. For air shipments, through using systematic cargo management techniques, Yusen Indonesia’s Customs clearance services are faster and more efficient; achieving greater service accuracy.
As part of Yusen Logistics’ medium term business plan, “GO FORWARD, Yusen Logistics – Next Challenges”, the Company has taken measures to expand its healthcare logistics services across Europe, most recently opening a new GDP warehouse in Amsterdam(**) and expanding its global shipping network. Now that Yusen Logistics Indonesia has acquired GDP certification, the expertise Yusen Logistics has cultivated in Europe will be applied to Asia – providing safe, reliable and speedy services to its customers.
