Airports and airline get pharma-certified

[ March 18, 2016   //   ]

The Amsterdam Airport Schiphol logistics community has launched an IATA CEIV Pharma-certified, closed chain programme, announced during the IATA World Cargo Symposium in Berlin. The initiative is the brain-child of Schiphol’s Pharma Task Force, launched in July 2015 by Air Cargo Netherlands, the Dutch Air Cargo Industry Association, and supported by a number of organisations at the airport. The new pharma chain has been branded “Pharma Gateway Amsterdam – Qualified & Transparent”. It aims to support a certified track from shipper to consignee, involving airlines, handlers, hauliers and logistics service providers – all of which will be certified to the standard.

Meanwhile, Shanghai Pudong Int’l Airport Cargo Terminal has been validated and now operates the first Chinese air cargo terminal with CEIV certification.
