DHL’s Dublin station receives IATA CEIV Pharma certification

DHL Global Forwarding, the air, ocean and road freight specialist within the Deutsche Post DHL Group, has received Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV) certification for its DHL Air Thermonet airfreight station in Dublin.
CEIV Pharma certification attests to “the highest service and quality standards for life sciences and healthcare customers through uniform processes and a compliant network”, a statement from DHL observed.
“Over many years, DHL has been actively involved with IATA’s continuous efforts to adequately answer to the regulatory demands of the pharmaceutical industry,” remarked David Bang, global head of DHL temperature management solutions and chief executive of LifeConEx for DHL Global Forwarding.
“This standardised approach in the airfreight industry means productivity, accuracy, and reliability. All of these lead to product integrity and patient safety.”
DHL started to certify its global stations according to the IATA CEIV Pharma standard in the third quarter of 2016.
“For many years the focus on regulatory compliance has been increasing in the life sciences sector and DHL continues to place significant emphasis on improving our service quality,” observed Maurice Meade, managing director of DHL Global Forwarding (Ireland).
“Supply Chain integrity is critical for this sector and we will continue to invest in our people and processes to ensure we meet the exacting standards of our customers in this industry.”
Only a couple of days ago it was announced by DHL Global Forwarding that its airfreight station in Leipzig had been granted CEIV certification by IATA.
