We herewith would like to inform you that Agility’s facilities in Basel, Switzerland, and Paris, France, have obtained accreditation as Qualified Envirotainer Providers (QEP).
The successfully concluded accreditation process is an important component and proof point in the strategy – serving the needs of the pharmaceuticals and biotech industry at the very highest level.
Basel plays a strategic role within Agility’s global network in the provision of unrivalled logistics services for our customers in the fields of healthcare and life science and is a major Pharmaceutical Competence Centre of Agility. The QEP accreditation documents the facility’s competence in the handling of temperature-controlled products. It also affirms our compliance with various internationally recognized guidelines regarding the shipment of temperature-sensitive goods, including those of the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
We aim to complete QEP-accreditation for more facilities within by end of June 2011: Zurich, Geneva and Lyon.
