Röhlig Logistics’ US business has achieved IATA Center of Excellence for Independent Validators Lithium Batteries (CEIV Li-batt) certification for its branches in Chicago and New York.

Röhlig USA said that to achieve the certification it had to pass a lengthy certification process consisting of in-depth employee training, on-site assessments and a final validation.

The company added that the certification of the two facilities in Chicago and New York was just the first step and there are plans to roll out to additional offices and countries across Röhlig’s  network in the coming months.

Markus Wegmann, chief operating officer at Röhlig USA, said: “We are delighted to be one of only a few freight forwarders in the US to have already been recognised with the CEIV Li-batt certification.

“It further demonstrates our expertise in handling lithium batteries as well as our compliance with all regulations.”

IATA introduced the certification to ensure that the lithium battery product supply chain meets its safety obligations and complies with the applicable transport regulations.
