Exelsius launch GDP programme IAG


The IAG Cargo/Exelsius Good Distribution Practice (GDP) Academy formally took off from Heathrow this week when the two organisations launched their joint training workshop. Aimed at improving industry compliance to GDP standards for Healthcare and Life Science products, the two-day course was attended by 17 students from the UK, Ireland, Europe and Russia and offered a combination of both classroom training and an airport ‘airside’ visit to the IAG Cargo Constant Climate Centre. Participants came from forwarders, logistic service providers, pharmaceutical companies and airlines, with students awarded a certificate of completion to the required standard. Tony Wright, CEO of Exelsius said: “The course programme was designed to provide students with an understanding of the compliance needs of GDP from a truly end-to-end perspective and uses many interactive methods of teaching.” Both IAG Cargo and Exelsius expect to extend the GDP Academy with further courses planned for the UK, Europe and Asia.
