Nippon Express (UK) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter, "NEUK"), a local subsidiary of 
Nippon Express Co., Ltd. based in Tokyo, has been officially granted Wholesale 
Distribution Authorisation (WDA) and Good Distribution Practice (GDP)

The UK is home to leading global pharmaceutical companies, and numerous small 
and medium-sized biopharmaceutical firms as well as world-class 
universities/research institutions, and has consequently become a major 
development and manufacturing base for pharmaceuticals.

An air-conditioned facility has been recently installed in this NEUK warehouse, 
offering temperature-controlled storage in three ranges: frozen (-18C), 
refrigerated (2C-8C), and room-temperature (15C-25C). NEUK will be combining 
temporary storage operations using this facility with Nippon Express's 
temperature-controlled international transport services to meet the logistics 
needs of customers in the pharmaceutical industry.

Nippon Express will continue enhancing its services to satisfy increasingly 
sophisticated and diverse needs pertinent to pharmaceuticals, and stepping up 
its efforts on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry, positioned as a priority 
industry in its Management Plan.
