Baku-based Silk Way West Airlines has been awarded Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification. To further improve the company’s capacity in reliably handling time and temperature sensitive cargo, the carrier has successfully completed an in depth GDP audit by Global Cold Chain Consultants.
Being GDP certified, Silk Way West Airlines now intends to extend its product line in transportation of medical goods and pharmaceutical logistics services.
Silk Way West Airlines’ internal procedures have been upgraded in accordance with GDP principles, and the company’s entire staff has been appropriately trained. The carrier also conducted a thermal mapping of its fleet and the extensive temperature-controlled storage facilities at its main hub in Baku to ensure the integrity of these processes.
“Obtaining the GDP certification proves the readiness of Silk Way West Airlines in taking a leading role in global distribution of medical supplies,” said Wolfgang Meier, CEO and president of Silk Way West Airlines, emphasising the importance of this achievement in entering the pharmaceutical logistics market.
