World Courier has achieved Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification across its global network of more than 140 offices.

The accreditation was awarded by the global management systems certification body DQS.

The certification process included a six-month evaluation, during which time DQS auditors analyzed the company’s transportation, handling and storage processes.

These processes were then tested against guidelines created by the European Union (EU GDP Guidelines​), United States Pharmacopeia (USP 1079​), and World Health Organization (WHO GDP​) – guidelines which regulate medicinal products distribution from the manufacturer to the patient.

According to the company, it is the first logistics company to attain global GDP certification against the three major GDP standards. 

World Courier, which is part of AmerisourceBergen, has offices in more than 50 countries, with 14 investigational drug depots in emerging markets.
