DHL gets CMO, Envirotainer nods

Both the FDA and Brazilian regulator ANVISA have given the thumbs-up to DHL Supply Chain's contract manufacturing operation in the Netherlands. The approvals clear the way for DHL to perform kitting, labeling and other late-stage product customization at the shared-use campus in Nijmegen.

DHL manages supply chains for 25 pharmaceutical and medical device companies, according to Analytiqa.

Separately, the logistics giant says its San Francisco-area station has been accredited as a qualified envirotainer provider (QEP). Its Global Forwarding unit is among the largest handlers of Envirotainers, air cargo containers made for temperature-sensitive shipments. The company expects its San Juan and several other North America stations to become QEP-accredited this year.
