PHARMACEUTICAL cold chain solutions provider Swiss WorldCargo has expanded its network to include 36 qualified Envirotainer provider (QEP) accredited stations.
The carrier's pharma network comprises QEP basic, advanced and expert levels, with 31 stations receiving the QEP advanced accreditation, the highest such number in the industry, reported London's Air Cargo News.
The company launched the QEP programme a decade ago to promote the safe handling of pharmaceuticals.
Its Zurich hub has also recently been recognised as a QEP expert station, based on its goods distribution practice (GDP) compliance and the International Air Transport Association's (IATA) Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) certification.
Swiss WorldCargo head of vertical industry pharmaceutical and healthcare Susanne Wellauer said: "This is another very important milestone for our pharma road-map. It clearly shows the expertise of our teams and our ability to handle Envirotainer shipments in accordance with the industry standard goods distribution practice.
"The QEP expert level of our Zurich hub is a clear evidence of our premium SWISS quality that extends through the whole Swiss WorldCargo network of 31 QEP advanced stations."
