WCA Credential Underscores Our Commitment to Pharmaceutical Logistics

Recognized by the World Cargo Association (WCAworld) – and its nearly 10,000 members in 194 countries – Prime Logistics remains the first-ever U.S. based global logistics company to offer the expertise of a fully credentialed Responsible Person for Logistics.

This highly regarded designation, awarded through London-based WCAworld Academy, signifies that corporate staff has a thorough understanding of the vast regulatory requirements for storage and distribution of materials for medicinal products in the pharmaceutical industry – not just in the U.S. but across the entire freight forwarding community worldwide.

Such certification comes at a pivotal time for the air cargo industry, as logistics companies across the globe are being called upon to play an ever-increasing role in the crucial worldwide distribution of COVID-19 vaccine.

Leader in Global Logistics

Having a WCA-accredited Responsible Person on staff reinforces the company’s commitment to continually expanding its knowledge base through education, innovation, and adaptation. It also reaffirms the company’s position as a trusted leader in the global logistics industry.

Responsible Person (RP) in Logistics course training provides candidates with a thorough understanding of the regulatory requirements for storage and distribution of materials or medicinal products in the pharmaceutical industry. Once certified in “Good Distribution Practice of Medical Products for Human Use,” the provider possesses a practical understanding of the systems and processes required to be implemented worldwide in delivering services in the most safe and efficient manner.

A key benefit of the certification is being authorized to proudly display the distinctive Responsible Person Certified (RP) seal – and the industry clout that brings.

This important RP designation ensures that customers know that Prime Logistics is highly qualified, knowledgeable, and compliant not only with the rules and regulations for shipping in the U.S., but for the multinational clients and companies that depend on us to properly prepare, package, and document their cargo so that it can be accepted without delay at airports and ship ports all across the world.

Certainly, this achievement puts Prime Logistics in a prime position, competitively. Additionally, this RP certification focuses not only on moving pharmaceuticals like vaccines, but also compliance and needed skills to expertly provide a whole host of medical supply logistics solutions.

The Go-To Source

WCAworld training also covers all the requirements of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) and associated responsibilities to ensure that products are exported and imported within the legal supply chain. This makes the “Responsible Person” the go-to source for the company and its customers regarding specific requirements in the proper transportation, storage, and distribution of medicinal products. The designee’s company also must have in place a well-designed Quality Management System (QMS) that focuses on compliance and continual improvement.

Under the umbrella of WCAworld, the largest and most powerful network of independent freight forwarders in the world, the WCA Academy offers both online and classroom-based training and education necessary to achieve and maintain the highest industry standard. Its base of 9,540 members may achieve certifications in a range of areas, from general freight training and problem solving to specialist courses in pharmaceuticals, perishables, and obtaining compliance.
