Schmitz Cargobull extends GDP certificate for pharmaceutical transport

Horstmar, Germany: TÜV Süd has confirmed certification of Schmitz Cargobull’s TrailerConnect telematics in accordance with Good Distribution Practice.

“Through the certification of TrailerConnect, our customers can present an important certificate for their GDP audits, which attests to the high quality and safety of our products,” reports Boris Billich, sales director, Schmitz Cargobull.

“With our GDP certificate, we can guarantee and document full process safety for customers throughout the entire process chain. From the recording of data in the trailer, to data storage, to display in the portal or forwarding in the API (interface for data forwarding to third-party systems).”

European Commission introduced the Good Distribution Practice (GDP) of medicinal products for human use for quality assurance and protection against counterfeit medicines in 2013. Manufacturers, pharmaceutical wholesalers and pharmacists must subject their processes to annual GDP audits. The requirements for certification are reassessed every two years.
