We have high standards at Challenger. Challenger’s HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) certification is an international standard that is applicable in Canada and the United States. HACCP is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and preventative controls of biological, chemical and physical hazards.

With our Pharma Certification, we know how to ship your valuable temperature-sensitive freight.  Challenger has been certified to transport pharmaceuticals since January 2017. Having built upon the standards that were put in place for HACCP, we also meet pharma transport requirements.
