Handled with care, LUG awarded CEIV Pharma at Frankfurt

Cargo ground handler LUG has received IATA’s CEIV Pharma certification for its recently upgraded Health Care Center (HCC) in Frankfurt airport’s CargoCity South.
LUG, part of Germany’s Dettmer Group, modernised its HCC in 2017 and expanded the temperature-controlled area to 625 sq m in a first step. Due to rising demand, the company has just started construction of an additional 190 sq m expansion which is planned to go into operation by the end of 2018.
Dominik Misskampf, senior project manager and manager HCC, LUG aircargo handling, said: “LUG has invested heavily in the handling process of temperature sensitive goods with the expansion and modernisation of the HCC. 
"Throughout the whole development process the IATA CEIV Standard has given us a clear guideline to provide our clients with the services that sensitive products require. We are very proud that our efforts to offer high-quality services have been rewarded.”
Mathias Jakobi, IATA’s area manager central Europe, said: “We are delighted that, as a key member of the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt, LUG aircargo handling has completed this process.
"After successfully undergoing a strict assessment based on national and international standards, in particular IATA’s Temperature Control Regulations, and GDP best practices, we are recognizing LUG (FRA) as CEIV Pharma certified."
