Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT) has attained the “Good Distribution Practices (GDP) for Pharmaceutical Products” by SGS Hong Kong Limited (SGS) on 30 July 2014. AAT is in strict compliance with the GDP requirements set out by the World Health Organization (WHO) to handle pharmaceutical products.
In face of growing global airfreight of pharmaceutical products, AAT realises that maintaining product quality and safety of pharmaceuticals in the supply chain is highly critical. In this regard, AAT has taken strong initiatives to adopt and follow the best practice of GDP guidelines and implement all requirements to exceed customers’ expectations. GDP pharmaceutical regulations are internationally recognised for warehouses and distribution centres dedicated for pharmaceuticals. SGS has conducted a comprehensive onsite GDP assessment at AAT’s terminal in Hong Kong International Airport, and AAT has been successfully certified for its satisfactory and full compliance with GDP standards and requirements.
To fulfill the stringent GDP requirements, AAT has strengthened its cool-chain facilities, processes and manpower in order to provide professional and sophisticated air cargo handling, logistics and storage services for pharmaceutical products that require stringent temperature control. Close monitoring and accurate temperature mapping are strongly put in place for preventing any temperature deviation and ensuring that a high quality, safe, stable and temperature-controlled environment is provided for customers.
