Dimerco awarded safety certifications

Global freight forwarder, Dimerco, has received two important certifications for safety and efficiency in handling customer consignments.

Dimerco Singapore was recently certified with the Good Distribution Practices for Medical Devices (GDPMDS) and Secure Trade Partnership (STP) for its best practices in handling customers’ sensitive cargos between Singapore and other countries.

GDPMDS shows that Dimerco Singapore is qualified to handle medical devices such as In-Vitro Diagnostic Equipment and Software (IVD) by protecting them against contamination and ensuring the quality and integrity of cargo during every transit point.

Dimerco Singapore is also certified with the highest level of security – STP-Plus (Premium Brand), which demonstrates Dimerco’s robust and capabilities in security and visibility of goods – which reduce the risk of cargo theft and ensure efficient and safe supply chain management for all customers.

“Qualifying for STP-Plus and being designated as the consignor under the Regulated Air Cargo Agent Regime means that Dimerco is seen as a low-risk operator,” said Dimerco’s Central Service Centre (CSC).

“Cargos handled by Dimerco are less likely to be required for a local inspection which expedites customs clearance.

“STP-Plus also aligns with Dimerco customers’ security arrangements and validation processes through Singapore’s 10 Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) partners – Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and United States.”

The STP-Plus certification in Dimerco Singapore is equivalent to the Authorized Economy Operator (AEO) certification, which Dimerco holds across China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Germany and the Netherlands.

Dimerco is also certified in North America’s AEO programs, CTPAT, for the United States and PIP for Canada.
