There has been remarkable growth in Singapore's pharmaceutical/medical 
industries, one of the sectors being promoted on a priority basis by the 
country, and many of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies have set up 
research, development and manufacturing locations there in what is fast 
becoming an industrial cluster. Accordingly, pharmaceutical import/export 
demand utilizing Changi Airport, which is increasingly distinguishing itself as 
a user-friendly free trade port, is expected to rise in future.

With this GDP certification, NE Singapore will have in place a system to 
provide safe and high-quality air import/export services for pharmaceuticals 
that leverage the benefits of being the only Japanese logistics company with a 
facility within the airport's bonded area.

By improving its infrastructure and obtaining certification at major business 
locations in Singapore and elsewhere, Nippon Express will be creating 
pharmaceutical logistics services using its global network to provide high 
value-added air transport services that meet the sophisticated and diversified 
needs of customers in the pharmaceutical industry.
