Swissport Cargo Liège gains CEIV certification

Air cargo handler Swissport International’s business at Liège Airport has successfully completed the validation process for IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) for pharmaceutical logistics.
Swissport Cargo Liège is, after Swissport Cargo Brussels, the second Swissport Cargo station to successfully complete the certification process, which aims to help airlines, handlers and forwarders improve their share of the $60bn a year pharmaceutical logistics market.
Swissport Cargo Services Belgium managing director Patrick Minsart said: “We are proud that Swissport Cargo Liege has successfully completed IATA’s CEIV pharma certification process, as this is another important milestone to continue putting Liège Airport on the map as a major logistics platform for the pharmaceutical industry.”
The CEIV certification programme comprises numerous modules focusing on equipment requirements, storage facilities, pharmaceutical handling procedures and internal pharmaceutical handling know-how.
It also includes implementation planning, on-site assessment, training and validation.
The Air Cargo News Life Sciences and Pharmaceuticals Conference 2015 will take place at the Lancaster London Hotel on December 14-15. For more details click here.
