Cargologic gains CEIV certification at Zurich Airport

Zurich Airport

Cargologic has obtained International Air Transport Association (IATA) Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) certification for pharmaceutical handling at Zurich Airport.

The Swiss WorldCargo ground handling partner says the certification assures cool chain integrity throughout the airline’s network. Pharmaceuticals are very important for the Swiss economy, with pharmaceutical and biotech shipments being transported via Zurich Airport increasing.

Swiss WorldCargo vertical industry manager pharma & healthcare, Susanne Wellauer says: “With Cargologic completing the CEIV process, we can now offer pharmaceutical handling excellence at Zurich hub and meet our customers’ needs for more safety, security, compliance and efficiency.”

Before receiving CEIV certification, Cargologic was awarded Good Distribution Practice compliance from the Swiss drug registration institution, Swissmedic in 2014, and in April 2015 its cold storage facilities were expanded to meet capacity requirements for the storage of temperature sensitive shipments.
