As of April 30, 2020, the international transport and info-logistics provider has opened its GDP-compliant Competence Center for Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare in India.
This is the company’s third competence center for pharmaceuticals and healthcare products, following Vienna and Hamburg. A 24/7 service desk ensures fast responses for all pharma-related shipments to and from India.
With the opening of the new Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Competence Center in Mumbai, cargo-partner has established a new hub to provide its customers with GDP-compliant services in warehousing, national and regional trucking as well as international air and seafreight.
To ensure fast and reliable service for urgent pharmaceutical and healthcare transports, cargo-partner in India recently introduced a 24/7 service desk which promises a response within 29 minutes as well as a full quotation within two hours.
Rajiv Singh, Managing Director of cargo-partner in India, explains the strategic setup of the new competence center: “With our new Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Competence Center in Mumbai, we can ensure full GDP compliance, end-to-end product integrity and professional handling at every step.
We have put together a dedicated team of well-trained staff from our air, sea, road transport and quality management departments who can support our customers with in-depth industry expertise. Our processes are based on many years of experience, making use of detailed risk and deviation management procedures to achieve maximum security and efficiency.”
Over the past decade, India has become one of the world’s dominant players in the pharmaceuticals and healthcare sector. According to the Indian Brand Equity Foundation, India supplies over 50 percent of global demand for various vaccines, 40 percent of generics demand in the US and 25 percent of all medicine in the UK. Indian drugs are exported to more than 200 countries in the world, with the US as the key market. For cargo-partner, this means that India is a key strategic point in the company’s global Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare network.
