Edmonton aims for CEIV Pharma certificate

Edmonton International Airport (EIA) will become the first airport community in Canada to pursue IATA’s CEIV pharma certification.
The airport said achieving the certification would ensure the airport community "meets the highest global standard for transporting pharmaceutical products by air".
“Edmonton International Airport is excited to begin the CEIV Pharma Certification with IATA and our partners in air and ground freight,” said Tom Ruth, president and chief executive of EIA.
“With the emerging pharma and bio-pharma development and clustering we continue to see in our region, EIA and our key air cargo stakeholders are looking to continuously improve the quality of how pharma cargo is handled, while connecting our airport to the global pharmaceutical network.”
EIA said the certification was also a vital step in building the cargo connectivity of the Edmonton Metro Region to the rest of the world by "providing the shippers with the confidence that our airport community can be a leader in handling and transporting temperature-sensitive products".
