Dnata gains CEIV certification at DWC

Cargo handler dnata has been certified by IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) for its pharma handling processes at Dubai World Central (DWC).

The accreditation complements dnata’s existing CEIV Pharma certification at Dubai International (DXB), demonstrating “the company’s ability to move pharmaceutical products under the strictest standards across its operations in the UAE”.

In the financial year 2018-19, dnata handled 3,130 tons of pharmaceutical products at the two Dubai airports.

Bernd Struck, senior vice president, UAE Cargo & DWC Airline Services, dnata, said: “Air cargo has been playing an increasing role in the transportation of temperature-sensitive cargo, including pharmaceutical products.

“We constantly enhance our operations to meet the growing demand, and invest in cutting-edge technologies to provide the highest possible value to our customers. The achievement of the prestigious CEIV certification at our DWC cargo hub demonstrates the quality and reliability of our services.”

Glyn Hughes, global head cargo, IATA, added: “Improving industry logistics networks to achieve supply chain excellence increasingly requires transparency and cooperation amongst all supply chain partners to provide the high quality services customers demand to ultimately safeguard patient safety. We are delighted to recognize dnata’s cargo facility at Dubai World Central (DWC) as an additional CEIV Pharma certified entity.”

Dnata is also CEIV Pharma certified in Amsterdam, Dallas, Singapore and Toronto, as well the GDP certification at Amsterdam, London, Manchester, Singapore, and Zurich facilities.
