ABC stays cool with CEIV Pharma re-certification

AirBridgeCargo Airlines, which became the first airline in Russia to achieve IATA CEIV Pharma three years ago, has been re-certified after an audit at its hub at Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport.

Fedor Novikov, deputy general director, special products, said: “IATA CEIV Pharma certification served as a trigger for further dynamic development of our dedicated ‘abc pharma’ product.” The airline has seen a 20% increase in its pharma shipments in the first eight months of 2019.

“We have significantly improved our service quality through continuous personnel training, collaboration with like-minded certified partners, and by following the path of digitalisation to achieve higher pharmaceutical handling excellence,” he added.

For the last five years, ABC has built its abc pharma network, with 18 QEP and 6 IATA CEIV certified stations. Apart from reliable partners, the company counts on up-to-date cold-chain special packaging solutions to maintain the required temperature for pharmaceutical products and is cooperating with the leading manufacturers of temperature-controlled containers.

Additional monitoring is guaranteed by data loggers, TPED devices, and data-collection equipment embedded in sophisticated containers.
