Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP) has become the first major airline group to pass the IATA CEIV Pharma re-certification for airline and airport operations.
The group set industry standards in February 2016 with certification for airport operations in Amsterdam and Paris, as well as the Air France and KLM airline operations.
AFKLMP reconfirmed its focus on the pharmaceutical business, not only investing in its digital transformation but also increasing its quality standards and cool chain solutions.
Marcel de Nooijer, executive vice president of AFKLMP says: “Pharma is a top priority for our airline group. In an increasingly demanding environment, this certification reconfirms our commitment to offering the highest possible quality standards in support of our customers’ business activities.”
Enrica Calonghi, global head of pharmaceutical logistics at AFKLMP says: “IATA CEIV Pharma re-certification confirms that our group aims to position itself not only as a leader in innovation and transparency, but also through putting care into healthcare by continually improving our processes and facilities.”
Nina Heinz, global head of network and quality and DHL Global Forwarding adds: “We applaud the commitment from our partner airlines to the IATA CEIV Pharma standardised approach in the air freight industry as this ensures a leadership position in productivity, accuracy and reliability through uniform processes and a compliant network.”
