DHL forwarding achieves IATA CEIV in Frankfurt and Hamburg

DHL Global Forwarding’s airfreight stations in Frankfurt and Hamburg have achieved IATA’s CEIV pharma Standard.
DHL started to certify its global stations according to the IATA CEIV Pharma Standard in the third quarter of 2016. Its Thermonet Station Leipzig hub was the first to achieve the certification in April this year.
The forwarder said that standard attests that the highest service and quality standards are maintained at those stations.
Thilo Specht, vice president airfreight Germany, DHL Global Forwarding, said: “Time critical and temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products require the highest quality standards in terms of warehousing, transportation and handling.
"To achieve this, standardised processes and a compliant, well-orchestrated network are mandatory. Seeing Frankfurt and Hamburg extending our global network on stations certified according the IATA CEIV Pharma Standard is a great achievement giving a strong signal in terms of quality and reliability towards our customers."
At each location, IATA examines the station’s correspondence to the Temperature Control Regulations (TCR), the Good Distribution Practices (GDP) guidelines of the European Union, the Annex 5 of the World Health Organization and the US Pharmacopeia Standards.
