CMA CGM launches reefer pharma division

Marseille, France: Shipping company CMA CGM has launched a new reefer pharma division for the temperature-controlled transport of pharmaceutical products.

CMA CGM specialises in the transport of refrigerated containers with a fleet of 385,000 TEU.

The new reefer division will offer shipping that meets all health and safety pharma requirements, including the European Union’s Good Distribution Practice requirements, which regulate the monitoring and distribution chains of pharmaceutical products in order to maintain the quality and integrity of shipped goods.

These European regulations guarantee high standards in terms of quality as well as health and safety, at all stages of shipping (storage, transport and handling).

Mathieu Friedberg, senior vice president Commercial Agencies Network CMA CGM, said: “By launching the CMA CGM Reefer Pharma Division, we are seeking to raise the standards of safety and care regarding the goods that our customers entrust to us. For us, it’s a matter of responsibility and delivering on our promise to provide optimal, adapted solutions.”
