Logistics company Dachser has achieved IATA CEIV Pharma certification for four of its locations: Frankfurt, Germany; Mumbai and Hyderabad, India; and most recently Atlanta, US.
IATA CEIV-certified companies meet the global standards and demonstrate the best practices in the handling of pharmaceutical products throughout the supply chain. These standards include European Union and World Health Organization Good Distribution Practices (GDP), United States Pharmacopeia standards, and IATA temperature control regulations.
In order for a company to become CEIV Pharma-certified, staff receive detailed training and processes such as the temperature control of shipments are subjected to a assessments and reviews by two separate, independent auditors.
Dachser’s certified premises meet and exceed international standards and guidelines, Dachser said. The company obtained CEIV Pharma certification of its Frankfurt Airport branch in late 2018, and of its Indian branches in Mumbai and Hyderabad in mid-2019.
Certification of its Atlanta branch marks another milestone in Dachser’s expansion of its global network for its life science and healthcare solutions.
Timo Stroh, head of global airfreight at Dachser, commented: “Our locations in Germany, India, and the US enable us to serve our customers in the life science and healthcare sectors in the key regions around the world.”
“This certification demonstrates that we fulfil the highest service and quality standards through uniform processes and a compliant network. In turn, our customers benefit from secure, compliant, and efficient air freight services.”
