Vision and Mission

Frigo-Trans stands for pharmaceutical logistics at the highest level. For this reason, the Head of our Quality Management demands to implement and perform the “Mission” parameters defined in the “Vision-Mission-Concept” within Frigo-Trans. The implementation ensures that the requirements according to ISO 9001 in the currently valid version as well as the requirements according to GDP, GMP and TAPA, are fulfilled.

Vision

Frigo-Trans is a leader in the implementation of GDP-compliant requirements. We are acting pro-active in regard of the development of innovative “end-to-end solutions” for the pharmaceutical industry. Frigo-Trans is always able to implement very quickly new regulations and customer requirements within a trained and qualified network of experts and thus to guarantee the product integrity and customer satisfaction at the highest level.

Mission

To achieve our common objectives, the Quality Management System has been established to ensure GDP-conformity as follows:

SOP COMPLIANCE

SOPs are respected and will be updated, if necessary. They have been approved, documented and are free available for every employee.


TRAINING COMPLIANCE

All Frigo-Trans employees who are involved in the pharma supply chain processes are trained on the GDP regulations.


SUBCONTRACTOR COMPLIANCE

All subcontractors are selected according to the requirements. They will be trained, and evaluated on a regular basis.


COOL CHAIN COMPLIANCE

Cool Chain Compliance is an integral part of our service portfolio (transport, storage and distribution).


DEVIATION MANAGEMENT COMPLIANCE

All deviations and claims are documented, managed and communicated.


FACILITY COMPLIANCE

All Frigo-Trans warehouses that manage health sector products are qualified GDP-compliant.


Therefore, we are prepared every day for an audit.
For us, GDP-compliance is not a “nice to have” – it’s a must!

Quality Management System / Security

As the only logistics company in Europe, we combine cGDP, TAPA TSR 1 and TAPA FSR A certifications with the status of the regulated agent under the roof of our QM-System. This is why we stand not only for a high level of product integrity, but also for the safety of your products.

For us, compliance with the current GMP and GDP guidelines and the AMG is a matter of course and part of our high quality standards. All employees are trained with special programs. By internal audits, the knowledge and acting will be periodically reviewed in order to achieve an optimal performance. The redundant invested temperature detection systems for transportation and storage are checked annually with calibrated measuring instruments. We modify our processes, when required. Of course, this change control is documented. For us, regular customer audits and internal audits are a comprehensive verification system which we face up at any time.

DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 certified

Since many years, all our business sectors have been certified to the DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems standard.


cGDP certified

A valid GDP certificate clarifies that Frigo-Trans is looking for quality in all its services and is a reliable partner in the supply chain of the pharmaceutical industry. To ensure this, all our buildings / warehouses as well as vehicles are qualified for their purposes and all employees are trained accordingly.


TAPA TSR 1 and TAPA FSR A certified

We offer the highest security level both in distribution and in storage. Specially secured transport units (Pharma-Liner®), trained drivers in combination with safe route planning and GEO fencing guarantee a comprehensive protection on the entire European routes, 24/7 – 365 days a year.

Our location in Fußgönheim is completely FSR A certified, the grounds accordingly secured with a fence system and video monitored 24/7. A barrier system prevents the entry of any unauthorized vehicles.


Regulated Agent

The status of regulated agent allows us to transport secure air cargo from a known consignor to the airport. In addition, we are able to make unsafe cargo safely.


Wholesale license according to § 52a AMG

Since November 2012 Frigo-Trans has been in the possession of a wholesale license according to § 52a AMG.
A further indication of our pharma-oriented acting and thinking.

Cool Chain Control System

Our customers are convinced of the unique and award-winning Cool Chain Control System of Frigo-Trans. The smooth coordination of all components of the reliable, high quality and added value generating wheelwork guarantees reliable compliance with the cold chain and works precisely like a Swiss watch.

coolchain_neu

The ever-increasing legal and regulatory requirements on the pharmaceutical industry have dramatically changed the challenges and complexity of cool chain logistics. Furthermore, the industry is trending to more LTL shipping, which places high demands not only on the pharmaceutical companies, but also on the efficiency of pharmaceutical logistics.

Our qualified Cool Chain Control system offers 100% security and flexibility!

Award hat trick: Three times the best cold chain logistics company in Europe

preis03_1322_Frigo-Trans_Webseite_2015_Komplett_Seite_1_Bild_0010Three times the midsized company Frigo-Trans won the international “Cool Chain Excellence Award” that is highly regarded within the pharmaceutical industry. That’s still not succeeded! 2011, the Pharma IQ platform awarded the in-house developed fleet of the so-called Pharma-Liner®. These 2-compartment trailers are transparent, high security trailers – a safe on wheels inside which the temperature of the valuable pharmaceuticals is monitored by the latest measuring and control technology. 2013, the Cool Chain Control System (CCCS) was awarded and two years later, the Transport meets Warehouse concept. It completes the CCCS with the four linked components: high security high-tech trailers for transport, innovative GPRS telematics for monitoring the freight, well-trained employees and qualified storage areas.

Our philosophy

Our goal today: Your success tomorrow

Already today we deal with new ways of tomorrow. We invest permanently in the development of the latest technology and the improvement of our logistics solutions and services in order to respond flexibly on new demands. We pursue this goal unswervingly to safeguard the cold chain without gaps, to ensure product integrity and thereby maximizing patient safety. Though, we always keep an eye on national and international developments and trends.

History

Since 1988 Frigo-Trans has been developing innovative logistics solutions for the specific requirements of the pharmaceutical industry. With tailor-made concepts and transports we are European-wide on the road for you.

Between 1988 and 1992, Frigo-Trans had its headquarters first in Frankenthal (Palatinate) in the private home of Walter Buchholz, the company’s founder. In early 1993, a first move took place to new company premises. With the entry of Peter Norheimer in 1994 to the company a sustainable growth process has been started. So a renewed move to larger premises within the city of Frankenthal became necessary in 2005.

Over the next six years, the company made a steady positive development and in 2011 it became clear that the trend continues to show upwards. In order to take account of this trend was the business decision to move out of the previously rented premises in Frankenthal and to risk a multimillion Euro investment to build a whole new site.

Thus, the ground-breaking ceremony for a new headquarters took place in September 2013. Since the beginning of 2015, the Frigo-Trans group now acts administratively and operationally out of Europe’s most modern pharmaceutical logistics center which is located in the middle of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region, in Fußgönheim (Palatinate).
