Pharmaceutical customers in France can now benefit from an even higher level of certified quality as well as new road services, offered under the product brand DB SCHENKERpharma +. At the beginning of the year, the logistics service provider obtained CERTIPHARM certification for the domestic ambient temperature transport of packaged medicines for human and veterinary use. Accredited by COFRAC, France’s sole national accreditation body, DB Schenker commits to providing high-quality services that comply with the strictest procedures and standards in the healthcare sector, particularly as regards labeling, traceability, hygiene and security.


DB SCHENKERpharma + is tailored specifically to transporting the type of health products that CERTIPHARM focuses on. As of February 1, customers have been able to choose from three versions: “system,” “pallet” and “top,” which provides a guaranteed delivery time. Whichever product they opt for, customers can rely on numerous quality features and services, including trained procedural staff, seamless temperature monitoring and a dedicated customer information system.
