DHL expands accreditation for secure cold chain

Bonn Germany: DHL Global Forwarding has expanded its Qualified Envirotainer Provider (QEP) Accreditation to 30 stations in locations as far afield as Germany, France, UK, the US, Egypt, Dubai, Japan and China.

By adding the QEP Accreditation to its major stations, DHL’s network is further integrated with Envirotainer operational requirements – to ensure customers proper shipping of temperature-sensitive life sciences and healthcare products. The company plans to add 48 stations to the QEP Training and Quality Program over the next few months.

“The QEP Accreditation supports our cold chain objectives to deliver excellent customer service with product integrity and regulatory compliance in mind,” says David Bang, chief executive of LifeConEx, DHL Global Forwarding’s temperature management specialists.

“Our expanded certification network covers already over 90% of our current Envirotainer volume, and we will continue to enroll additional stations worldwide to the program, starting with Frankfurt, Germany.”

Envirotainer, the world-leader in cold chain logistics solutions, developed the QEP Training and Quality Program to increase the quality levels in cold chain management in the air transport industry. The program includes the Good Distribution Practice Guidance from organisations such as the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Envirotainer provides active temperature-controlled air freight containers maintaining product temperatures within the temperature ranges +2 to +8°C, +15 to +25°C and >-20°C in nearly any ambient condition appearing along shipping routes globally. With a relationship of more than 10 years, Envirotainer and DHL have formed a special partnership that has forged the way for the life sciences and the healthcare industry and active cold chain management.

The partnership between DHL and Envirotainer helps secure well planned, secure and compliant cold chain logistics, enabling clients to reach patients worldwide through DHL’s network of 120 life sciences and healthcare facilities across the globe, says DHL.
