One of the reasons that makes Royal Cargo a preferred partner of choice in logistics is because of the services it offers that are tailored-fit to every client’s needs.

Its specialized services include Pharmaceutical/Clinical Trial Logistics. 

Pharmaceutical/Clinical Trial Logistics is a business unit of Royal Cargo Inc. that provide logistics management solutions for pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries.

Royal Cargo started offering logistics for pharmaceutical and biotechnological companiesin July 2007 when Royal Cargo secured a partnership with World Courier and named the business unit Premium Courier. This pioneering business has seen a steady growth of client base since inception, and to address the growing requirement of clinical trial drug storage, a 400 SQM facility dedicated for Premium Courier was constructed in 2012.

Premium Courier created a name when it was accredited by a certifying body with its Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification in 2013. We are the first logistics company in the Philippines to be awarded with Goods Distribution Practice (GDP) based on World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines. Aside from GDP certification, our facility and processes have passed the audits of the government regulatory agency and major players in the clinical trial industry.

In 2015, a 400 SQM warehouse with capacity of 345 PP was set-up to store commercial pharma drugs, hence the change of business unit’s name from Premium Courier to Pharmaceutical/Clinical Trial Logistics.
