Pharma first for Bolloré Logistics
31 / 01 / 2017
Bolloré Logistics has become the first transport and logistics company in France to gain IATA’s CEIV Pharma certification for its Paris Roissy CDG platform.
The French logistics giant has already received similar certification for its sites in Brussels (Belgium), Frankfurt (Germany) and Lisbon (Portugal).
Bolloré Logistics has IATA Pharma certification in progress at across Europe, but also in other regions of the world, including Africa, Singapore, Johannesburg and Chicago.
Brice Bellin, Bolloré Logistics’ healthcare director Europe, said: "By certifying our hubs around the world we are able to guarantee our customers airfreight transportation respecting the cold chain and the strict quality standards required by the pharmaceutical industry.
“This certification demonstrates our ability to standardize our end-to-end processes from origin to final destination."
Nick Careen, senior vice president, airport, passenger, cargo and security for IATA, said:"Cold chain management, especially with healthcare products, must meet the requirements of quality and reliability.
“Shippers expect standardization and transparency throughout the supply chain and want to be assured that facilities are equipped and operated throughout the highest standards.
“The CEIV Pharma certification meets all these requirements and more. Bolloré Logistics took up this CEIV Pharma certification challenge.”
