Transport and logistics services provider Geodis has gained IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) certification for a number of locations across Asia.

The Geodis stations certified for CEIV Pharma are: Shanghai Pudong International in China; Soekarno-Hatta International in Indonesia; Indira Gandhi International in Delhi and Chhatrapati Shivaji International in Mumbai, both in India; Incheon International in South Korea; Bangkok Suvarnabhumi in Thailand; Dubai International in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates; and Singapore Changi International.

According to a statement from the company: “This certification supports GEODIS’s strategic goals of establishing Pharma Healthcare as a key organisational vertical and expanding its global network by accrediting sites in numerous countries throughout the APAC [Asia Pacific] region.”

CEIV Pharma certification demonstrates the company’s dedication to offering its customers supply chain transparency, it said, noting that Geodis can provide customers with shipment location and temperature data using GPS data loggers controlled by a control tower.

Onno Boots, Geodis’s regional president and chief executive for the APAC and Middle East region, commented: “With the CEIV Pharma accreditation, we can ensure our customers of our competence and commitment to handle pharmaceutical temperature-sensitive products with the utmost care and attention.

“Pharmaceutical businesses need to find logistics solutions that are dependable and effective, and GEODIS is in a perfect position to offer them the best services in the area.”

He continued: “Without a doubt, we are responding to the healthcare industry’s demand for options in the selection of global supply chain partners and we look forward to establishing GEODIS as a key service provider for pharma and healthcare companies, particularly in Asia Pacific and Middle East where we see the key hubs of production and distribution.”

Geodis’s expertise in Customs brokerage and contract logistics are believed by the logistics giant to be of particular value to pharma healthcare shippers in Asia. “GEODIS is well-positioned to manage the trade compliance needs of healthcare companies as they expand their operations into new markets,” the statement observed.
