dnata wins EU approval in Philippines
02 / 03 / 2015
UAE-BASED ground handling company dnata’s operation in Manila has secured RA3 cargo certification for its ramp services at Ninoy Aquino International airport.
RA3 certification complements the global air cargo industry’s drive to meet the European Union’s ACC3 – air cargo or mail carrier operating into the Union from a third country airport – minimum standard.
Dnata is one of the first ramp operators in the Philippines to receive certification for the supply-chain security initiative of the European Union.
The certification – granted by EU-approved and trained validators – confirms the procedures dnata implements are compliant with the requirements.
It ensures the smooth transport of cargo to European Union destinations, improving efficiency and the flow of goods from Manila and the rest of the Philippines.
“Last year, dnata supported the transport of more than 11,000 tonnes of cargo [in the Philippines],” reveals Margaret Yu, the company’s general manager in the region.
“With RA3 certification, our customers can be confident their goods will arrive smoothly and securely at destinations throughout Europe.”
