28 / 11 / 2016
Cyber Freight Amsterdam has received its IATA Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators’ Pharma (CEIV Pharma) certificate.
The Hoofddorp-based subsidiary of family-owned Cyber Freight International is a member of Pharma Gateway Amsterdam (PGA) at Schiphol Airport.
PGA, launched by the Netherlands airport, is a community-based cool chain logistics programme for the niche high value airfreight product.
All participants in PGA will be IATA CEIV Pharma-certified and the programme is the initiative of Schiphol’s Pharma Task Force, launched in July 2015 by Air Cargo Netherlands, the Dutch air cargo industry association.
John Twisk, director operations at Cyber Freight, said: “Next to our GDP, ISO9001 and AEO certificates, this CEIV-certification will enable us to extend the quality standards of our airfreight service for our clients in the pharmaceutical industry. That is exactly the reason why we are very active in Pharma Gateway Amsterdam.”
Jonas van Stekelenburg, head of cargo at Schiphol Airport: "With this certificate, IATA confirms that Cyber Freight executes the storage and handling of medicines and other pharmaceuticals products with the utmost care."
Together with the other Pharma Gateway Amsterdam members, Cyber Freight will continue the efforts to optimise and improve the handling of pharma-shipments through Schiphol.
Cyber Freight, specialised in pharma, provides air- and seafreight, as well as warehousing and distribution. It is an active member of the Pharmafreight network.
