Cargogate, provider of cargo handling services and a 100% subsidiary of Munich Airport since 1974, has been awarded the designation of pharma-certified warehouse, receiving Munich’s first GDP certificate. The GDP (Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human Use – 2013/C 343/01) is a European standard for handling medical products. Cargogate functions as a service provider for airlines that carry freight but do not maintain their own warehouse facilities at Munich Airport.
The GDP was awarded to Cargogate by the German audit company DQS GmbH in September 2018.
"We are delighted to have a certificate that demonstrates our continued high standards," noted Claudia Weidenbusch, Managing Director of Cargogate. "This not only shows our excellent working practices as a Ground Handler but also our commitment to the patients who receive the pharmaceuticals. We are a reliable link in the supply chain that keeps these medicines effective," she continued.
Cargogate also serves as a strategic partner handling temperature-controlled containers for Envirotainer. Weidenbusch commented, "Together with these containers and our GDP-certified facilities and standards we ensure delivery of the best possible service to our customers."
