Shanghai Pudong International Airport Cargo Terminal (PACTL)

The new cool chain infrastructure at Shanghai Pudong International Airport Cargo Terminal (PACTL) has successfully the validation process to obtain the International Air Transport Association’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) in Pharmaceutical Logistics.

As a result, PACTL now operates the first Chinese air cargo terminal that has obtained the CEIV certification.

PACTL vice president, Lutz Grzegorz says: “Having satisfied the IATA CEIV Pharma regulations, our new cool centre now fully complies with all the relevant standards expected by pharmaceutical manufacturers.

“This further helps Shanghai Pudong International Airport move towards becoming the number one pharmaceutical gateway to China.”

IATA established the CEIV in Pharmaceutical Logistics in order to help companies from the entire air cargo supply chain achieve excellence in their pharmaceutical handling operations.
