WCA Pharma Network Host GDP Training Session
for the shipping and logistics of pharma & life science products

For Immediate Release

MIAMI, July 17, 2017 - WCA Pharma Network achieved complete internal validation of all network members this past April. Solidifying this success, the network hosted its first GDP training course at the 2017 World Speciality Logistics fair on 23 June, successfully certifying all of the training participants.

The GDP training session, which was held to ensure that members are fully GDP Compliant, successfully validated 30 WCA members. Members received their GDP Certifications during the Fair's Gala Awards dinner at Nikki Beach in Miami Florida.

"This new status has aligned our group to set new, international standards for the logistics of pharmaceutical and life science products," said Adam McKenna, GM of the WCA Pharma Network. "We can now confidently say that all WCA Pharma member services far surpass current industry standards for quality and compliance."

The WCA Pharma Network will be fully GDP Complitant and Certified by the close of the third quarter, 2017. Once achieved, the network will continue to set the global standard for the shipping and logistics of pharmaceutical and life science products; underlining WCA's commitment to the Pharmaceutical Logistics industry and the desire to help members create opportunities that come with such quality.

WCA Pharma thanks Oliver Seroka, director of cool chain solutions at Gondrand Global Transports and Logistics, for successfully leading and executing this first-of-its-kind course. With so many members gaining accredidation, the network looks forward to rolling out a series of regional tranining camps.
