WCA and ASC Associates form strategic partnership

WCA and ASC Associates have formed a strategic partnership designed to enhance WCA’s continuing commitment for compliance and logistical innovation in the pharmaceutical sector.

WCA Pharma selected ASC for its one-day Good Distribution Practice (GDP) training course for their Pharma GDP Training held at the World Specialty Logistics Fair in Bangkok, Thailand.

ASC’s suite of training includes GDP for medicinal products, which has been designed for the logistics industry to enhance compliance within the supply chain. Working in partnership, ASC will offer their expertise in GDP and supply chain security to WCA members.

“We have big plans for a close collaboration across several networks, even looking at creating a WCA Academy in the near future,” said WCA Pharma general manager Adam McKenna. “It’s clear that there is value in what we’re doing. Each time we host a training session, space is filled weeks in advance and our members achieve impressive high scores.”

ASC CEO Amy Shortman stated: “We are delighted to have been selected by WCA to offer our services and suite of training to their members.

“Over the coming months we hope to expand services and training to include courses such as: Anti-bribery and Corruption, Supply Chain Security, and Risk Assessments.”

WCA is especially grateful to ASC for helping host such a successful session.

“The numbers speak for themselves,” says McKenna. “With 42 participants and a 100 per cent success rate, we’re ensuring that our members are ready and able to handle this business above other forwarders who may not have planned in advance.”
