The Lufthansa Cargo Cool Center has confirmed its role as a pioneer at Frankfurt Airport by being awarded the Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certificate.
Flying insulin, vaccines and other sensitive freight safely around the world and maintaining the supply chain is what the Lufthansa Cargo Cool Center in Frankfurt (LCCC) stands for. In October the Cool Center had its infrastructure, staff and processes tested and certified by the certification body DQS. The DQS confirmed to Lufthansa Cargo the exceptional handling services provided by Cool/td shipments. The GDP standards define the highest quality requirements for the distribution of medicinal products, including packaging and transport. The official presentation of the GDP certificate by DQS will occur on 26 November.
The Cool Center in Frankfurt is so far the only airline-owned GDP-certified handling facility for pharmaceutical products at Frankfurt Airport.
