Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP) has announced it has been awarded IATA CEIV Pharma certification for the Air France and KLM airline processes and its Charles de Gaulle and Schiphol hub operations for the third time.
This certification assures pharmaceutical companies of reliable transportation of temperature-controlled and time-sensitive products.
Nick Careen, IATA senior vice president operations, safety and security says: “The European freight market is one of the largest in the world, accounting for close to a quarter of total global trade. Having Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, one of the region’s largest cargo operators, achieve CEIV Pharma Certification at two of Europe’s largest airports, for the third time, is a testament to the company’s reliable handling of pharma shipments.”
Adriaan den Heijer, executive vice president of Air France KLM Cargo and managing director of Martinair adds: “The pharmaceutical segment forms a strategic part of our business in which we continuously invest. The IATA CEIV Pharma recertification demonstrates once again that we have the right expertise, processes and facilities in place. We will make additional investments this year in our facilities, (digital) services and people to further strengthen our proposition for our pharmaceutical customers.”
