EuroAirport gains IATA CEIV Pharma certificate


EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg has been presented with its IATA CEIV Pharma certificate in the presence of airport stakeholders and IATA representatives.

The certificate was presented to the airport at a customer event at the EuroAirport Cargo Terminal in the presence of IATA’s global head of cargo, Glyn Hughes and representatives from Fiege, Fischer Road Cargo, Swissport and Swiss WorldCargo.

The airport, which is situated at the crossroad of Switzerland, France and Germany is the first airport authority to be certified IATA CEIV Pharma within a community approach in France and Switzerland.

In 2015, Fiege, Fischer Road Cargo, Swissport and Swiss WorldCargo joined forces to implement IATA CEIV both individually and at a collective level.

All programme participants worked closely together to ensure they delivered high quality standards in transporting, storing and handling temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals at EuroAirport.

The 21,000m2 Cargo Terminal offers constant temperature control, real-time temperature monitoring as well as fast and efficient processing.

EuroAirport says it is able to meet the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry in the region as a whole and in Basel, which is home to the world’s highest density of life science companies.
