Pharmaceuticals and life sciences

Our GDP accredited service

Offering you a range of solutions for your time and temperature sensitive pharma and life sciences shipments

We don’t over promise or under deliver, we just simply provide what you need. You are the experts and we’re here to support you in an open and honest way, providing dynamic solutions for your individual shipment needs.

Our global headquarters operations and LHR Pharma Zone have been granted GDP accreditation (WDA), representing a stamp of approval from the MHRA across our processes, training and quality management system. Our service offering for temperature-sensitive shipments also benefits from the co-location of our handling operations with Delta Cargo at major gateways in the UK and US, who continue to expand their IATA CEIV Pharma programme. Ours is the first JV providing true end-to-end compliance and assurance for customers moving pharma and life science shipments in both markets.

There is no ‘end game’ with pharmaceutical and life sciences' shipments. It’s about continuous improvement and demonstrating our ability to meet the required quality standards for every single shipment. We are committed to offering you the best possible service so if you haven’t experienced the Virgin difference yet, why not give us a try – you won’t regret it.
