Nippon Express opens NEX-PHARMA Logistics Hub at Kansai Airport


Nippon Express has established a new temperature-controlled facility – NEX-PHARMA Logistics Hub Kansai Airport – enabling strict temperature control of international air cargo. This facility will open for business on Monday, July 26. A ceremony celebrating the start of operations was held on Thursday, July 15.

Strict compliance with quality standards such as GDP (Good Distribution Practice) has been required for pharmaceutical products worldwide in recent years. Customers have been demanding ever-higher levels of quality for temperature control during transport and storage.

The newly opened NEX-PHARMA Logistics Hub Kansai Airport will focus on handling cargo for the pharmaceutical industry, aiming all the while to comply with the Japanese version of GDP guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in December 2018. In addition, Nippon Express has also joined the KIX Pharma Community sponsored by Kansai Airports Co., Ltd. to obtain the CEIV Pharma pharmaceutical transport quality certification advocated by IATA.

Upon obtaining this certification, Nippon Express will become the first air cargo forwarder in Japan to operate in-house a GDP-certified facility on airport premises, enabling it to provide safe and high-quality temperature-controlled transport services at Kansai International Airport, the gateway to western Japan.
