WCA launches pharma logistics training scheme

[ November 21, 2019   //   ]

WCA Pharma Academy has held the first course in a Good Distribution Practice (GDP) Compliance training program for freight forwarders in Amsterdam.

WCA Pharma members are required to be GDP compliant to maintain their group membership, which is a quality assurance that pharmaceutical products are stored, transported, and handled under suitable conditions.

All participants are tested on GDP Compliance prior to the training and sit an exam at the end of the program.

Of the 18 participants on the course, nine received a score of 95% or higher.

The next GDP Compliance training will be held on 16 June 2020 at the World Specialty Logistics Fair in Dallas, Texas.
