“The QEP Accreditation supports our cold chain objectives to deliver excellent
customer service with product integrity and regulatory compliance in mind. Our
expanded certification network covers already over 90 percent of our current
Envirotainer volume, and we will continue to enroll additional stations
worldwide to the program, starting with Frankfurt, Germany,” says David Bang,
CEO of LifeConEx, DHL Global Forwarding’s temperature management specialists.

Envirotainer, the world-leader in cold chain logistics solutions, developed

chain management in the air transportation industry. The program includes the
Good Distribution Practice Guidance from organizations such as the Parenteral
Drug Association (PDA), the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and
the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

“This accreditation in our U.S. locations signifies that our customers can
rest assured that we have the proper processes in place and our employees have
the technical knowledge necessary to manage Envirotainer container shipments.
We work vigorously to ensure all temperature-sensitive products we handle are
transported safely and securely to their ultimate destination domestically or
abroad,” said Marco Quiros, vice president, head of Business Development Multi
National Customers, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Americas.
