Toronto, Ont.–Direct Distribution Centres (DDC), the warehousing division of Canada Cartage, says it has enhanced its ability to handle Natural Health Product and Over the Counter Drug Product fulfillment and value-added services.
The DDC facilities in Toronto, Ontario, Calgary, Alberta, and Vancouver, British Columbia all operate under a Natural Health Canada Site license which allows the company to store, pick, and ship Natural Health Products. DDC has received Health Canada approval to add two new licenses to their operation:
1. A Natural Health Product Site License for labelling which allows the company to provide secondary packaging of “kitting” services that require labelling activities such as lot code labels, expiry dates, etc.
2. A Drug Establishment License for packaging and labelling of over-the-counter drug products. This activity is similar to the secondary packaging as outlined above, but is specific to drug products.
