SDV Receives the Best 3PL Award for Pharma / Lifesciences / Healthcare Supply Chains in Asia-Pacific

November 19th, 2015

On November 4th, 2015, SDV was awarded Best 3PL for Pharma/Lifesciences/Healthcare Supply Chains at a reception during the eyefortransport (eft) Asia-Pacific 3PL Summit & Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum in Singapore.

​This was the first time that the eft 3PL Awards were present in the Asia-Pacific region in an effort to recognize the best 3PL companies per category (seven in total), including Best 3PL for Pharma/Lifesciences/Healthcare Supply Chains. For this, the Asia-Pacific 3PL customers were solicited to vote for their favorite Logistics Service Provider; the shortlist was then vetted and tallied by the staff of eft.

“We would like to send a warm thank you to SDV pharmaceutical customers who trust us on SDV services for the last ten years,” said Emmanuel Petrequin, Regional Healthcare Manager at SDV Asia Pacific.

“This result couldn't have been achieved without the support of a team fully dedicated and committed to serve its customers,” adds Mr. Petrequin.

SDV is fulfilling the highest quality standards at their warehouses (GMP, ISO 13485), and making the pharmaceutical supply chain more agile and secured by performing a full scope of services from warehousing and distribution, including pick and pack and late-stage customization.

Another instrumental and risky part of the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain is the international air and sea transport. For this, SDV complies with Quality measures outlined by IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) and meets all the strict guidelines and regulations of the industry. These measures, in addition to continuously striving to improve its solutions, most likely contributed to earning this award.

“Besides the Pharma industry, SDV has developed the same level of expertise in 3PL activities throughout Asia-Pacific for other industries such as Luxury & Fashion, Cosmetics, FMCG‎, Chemical, Aerospace, and Oil & Gas,” highlights Pierre Houe, Chief Operating Officer (COO) at SDV for the Asia-Pacific region.
