Nippon Express USA, Inc. (Toshiya Abe, President; hereinafter, “NX USA”), a Group company of Nippon Express Holdings, Inc. (Mitsuru Saito, President), has obtained Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification effective December 20, 2021 for forwarding operations, inclusive of temporary storage, at a temperature-controlled facility in its own CFS near John F.

The US Northeast is home to a large number of companies involved in the pharmaceutical and medical device businesses, and demand in those sectors is expected to rise in future.

The NX Group will continue stepping up its initiatives in the pharmaceutical industry, identified as a priority industry in the Group’s Business Plan, and globally enhancing and expanding its services to meet the increasingly sophisticated and diversified pharmaceutical transport needs of its customers.
