JET8’s GDP Consulting

Knowledge as a pioneer in temperature-controlled shipping

We provide expertise in temperature management technology, which we have cultivated since our founding. Our support extends beyond the methods for managing various temperature ranges used for pharmaceutical products, such as -20°C, +2°C to +8°C, and +15°C to +25°C, to include validation and calibration procedures necessary for strict temperature maintenance.

Expertise in International Transportation of Dangerous Goods

The international air transportation of pharmaceuticals during manufacturing and development requires arrangements that comply not only with GDP guidelines but also with the standards set by IATA (International Air Transport Association). Special packaging for infectious substances, flammable, and combustible materials, as well as regulations for dry ice and liquid nitrogen used as refrigerants, are essential aspects that need to be considered.

Complete Support from Transport to Storage

JET8 provides not only international and domestic shipping following GDP guidelines but also warehouse storage services, offering total support for pharmaceutical supply chains. We are capable of providing comprehensive assistance in adhering to GDP guideline standards for pharmaceutical supply chains.

GDP Guidelines tailored to Real Conditions

As JET8 arranges shipping and storage in accordance with GDP guidelines, we can propose realistic methods for complying with GDP guidelines. We will provide advice on the appropriate approach.

Types of GDP Guidelines

Speaking of GDP guidelines, various guidelines are issued by different countries and organizations. When it comes to international shipping, it is crucial to adhere to not only Japan’s GDP guidelines but also those of the destination country.

Not only the difference in content but also the presence or absence of legal binding vary by country or region. Understanding the content of the applicable guidelines is essential before implementing any measures.

While reference procedures may be available from authorities or publishers, it is crucial to develop SOPs that align with the specific business practices and operational procedures rather than simply adopting the reference documents as they are.
