TOKYO, Dec. 17, 2020 /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/ --

Nippon Express (Vietnam) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter, "NE Vietnam"), a local 
subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. based in Tokyo, has obtained Good 
Distribution Practice (GDP) certification, effective Friday, November 13, for 
the air/ocean cargo forwarding, road haulage and warehousing services of its 
Amata Logistics Center, evidencing the facility's compliance with standards for 
the proper distribution of pharmaceuticals.

Boasting a population of around 100 million, Vietnam has in recent years seen 
its gross domestic product (GDP) grow at an annual rate of 6%-7%, producing a 
high growth rate for its pharmaceutical market as well. The market's expansion 
has been driven by rapid economic growth, widespread participation in medical 
insurance programs and high health consciousness among the public, while 
ratification of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) is expected to 
stimulate both domestic demand within Vietnam and the manufacture/export of 
generic pharmaceuticals.

Having acquired this GDP certification, NE Vietnam will be working to handle 
the anticipated increase in pharmaceutical imports from Europe as well as 
business expansion by Japanese pharmaceutical manufacturers and extending its 
services globally in cooperation with other Nippon Express Group companies that 
have already obtained GDP certification.

Nippon Express will be striving to further enhance its services and step up its 
efforts on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry to meet growing customer needs 
inside and outside Japan.
