Swiss WorldCargo: 36 QEP accredited Stations
The specialist in secure cold chain solutions for the pharmaceutical supply chain, Envirotainer, announced that Swiss WorldCargo now has 36 QEP (Qualified Envirotainer Provider) accredited stations, comprised of QEP Basic, Advanced and Expert levels. With 31 stations receiving the QEP Advanced accreditation, the airline has the highest number of stations with this distinction within the industry. Alongside this, the airline’s Zurich hub has recently been recognized as a QEP Expert station, based on its GDP compliance and CEIV certification.
Over ten years ago Envirotainer launched the award-winning QEP program to promote the safe handling of pharmaceuticals. QEP has led the way for other pharmaceutical handling certification programs and has, with approximately 40 participating companies, educated tens of thousands of individuals at more than 730 participating stations across the world. The effect has been to promote strong distribution practices and standardize the safe handling of Envirotainer containers.
