"PDD is also to assist the customers to meet the guideline on the Good Distribution Practice (GDP) requirement set by the Ministry of Health to ensure the storage, transporting and distribution of any registered products, notified cosmetic and its related materials such that the nature and quality intended are preserved when it reaches the customer," she said.

At the launching of PDD officiated by the corporate adviser and non-executive director of KPJ Healthcare Bhd, Datin Paduka Siti Sa'adiah Sheikh Bakir, she said Nationwide Express had been servicing the logistics needs of many of the top pharmaceutical companies in Malaysia.

"To fulfil the needs, we invested RM5 million to buy 19 air-conditioned trucks and two trucks equipped with chillers and freezers to ensure the safety and performance when the products reach the consumers," she said.

Rozilawati said the Good Distribution Practice was used as a standard to justify status and as a basis for the inspection of facilities, such as manufacturers, importers and wholesalers.

"Nationwide Express is working towards being GDP compliant and ready to take up the role this year and heading towards 2015," she said.

"In line with the GDP requirement, Nationwide Express will work hand-in-hand with customers and Ministry of Health to ensure that this delivery solution meets the prerequisite set by the government and to ensure customer satisfaction.
