CMA CGM raises its game in medicine transport

[ May 17, 2019   //   ]

CMA CGM has launched a Reefer Pharma division for temperature-controlled pharmaceutical products. The shipping line will provide its customers with a dedicated team to monitor shipments 24 hours from its head office in Marseilles, as well as on board its ships and from the company’s operational centres in Singapore and Miami.

It also pledges to offer the newest containers, guaranteeing the absence of external contamination along with inspection of each container before it leaves the warehouse. Containers will be sealed to deny access to those without authorisation, along with measures to ensure limited handling of containers during transportation.

There will be regular inspections of CMA CGM subcontractors and facilities.

CMA CGM meets the European Union’s Good Distribution Practice requirements, which regulate the monitoring and distribution chains of pharmaceutical products and is also ISO 9001:2015 certified.
