Malta firm gains medical mark

[ October 7, 2013   //   ]

Malta-based Express Trailers has been listed on the Eudra GMDP Database for Good Distribution Practice for medical products – the first transport and logistics company from the island to do so.

EudraGMDP is compiled by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and now includes information on good distribution practice (GDP) as well as manufacturing. It is a key deliverable of the new European Falsified Medicines Directive and will make the supervision of manufacturing and distribution of medicines more robust by allowing all the actors in the supply chain to check information available on their suppliers.

Express Trailers chiarman and CEO, Franco Azzopardi, said: “Good practice, high standards, conformity and safety are our core values .” Inclusion in GMDP would confirm to the company’s customers the stringency of Express Trailer’s entire operation and was “a vote of confidence in our service, our logistical infrastructure and more importantly, in our philosophy and commitment to offer the best standards.”

The company opened two new temperature-controlled warehousing facilities next to its head office in Luqa last year, purposely designed and built for the storage of pharmaceuticals.
