Marken Releases Exclusive Gold Book

Global Supply Chain Partner Invests in Good Distribution Practices (GDP) Worldwide


Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, July 14, 2016 – This week, Marken announced the launch of the Gold Book – the company’s premier publication on GDP compliance.

The newly published guide emphasizes the critical nature of GDP compliance for the life science supply chain industry. It offers a complete detailing of GDP guidelines, compliance and impact on the industry and clients. The Gold Standard confirms Marken’s dedication to the storage and transportation of drug products and, the company’s leading role in developing an extensive certification program as outlined in the book.

Over the past few years, GDP requirements have evolved with the growing needs of the industry. Moreover, violations have brought GDP compliance into the spotlight, bringing increased scrutiny to life science companies from regulatory bodies.

As patient populations become more diverse and dispersed across the world, Marken’s Gold Network is a trusted resource for life science companies. Following a significant investment of time and resources beginning in 2014, Marken is proud to confirm that all logistics branches are GDP certified. Compliant with all country regulations, Marken leads the market by complying with the increasingly demanding regulatory requirements through an extensive Quality Management System (QMS) comprised of over 250 SOPs.

Wes Wheeler, Marken’s Chief Executive Officer, emphasized Marken’s passion to “drive innovation and exceed client expectations and goals.” He explained, “That’s why we designed a fully integrated GDP compliant network.” Wheeler continued, “When it comes to the patient, Marken recognizes the critical nature of product safety and strict regulatory compliance. The investments in our network highlight our focus on ensuring our global footprint is 100% GDP compliant.”
