Swissport Cargo Services Frankfurt awarded CEIV Pharma


Swissport Cargo Services Frankfurt – a subsidiary of Swissport International – has been awarded IATA CEIV Pharma certification at Frankfurt Airport.

This certification Swissport says reflects its continued dedication to offer “excellent” life science & healthcare shipment handling services and will increase its contribution to the Pharma Gateway Frankfurt.

Swissport says with the increasing flow of life science & healthcare shipments over the past few years, maintaining a stable and secure supply chain requires specific equipment, storage facilities, harmonised handling procedures and above all, strong cooperation among cool chain partners.

As part of the Frankfurt Cargo community efforts, Swissport Cargo Services Frankfurt has developed a dedicated product line for the handling of life science & healthcare shipments.

The handler says after investments into infrastructure, equipment and training, Swissport Cargo Services Frankfurt has now successfully been awarded with the IATA CEIV Pharma certification.

Swissport Cargo Services Frankfurt station manager, Philip Roodenburg says: “Regarding pharma shipments, we fully realise that there are always humans involved who need a constant flow of safely delivered medical products.

“Hence, it is of utmost importance to have a solid process, training and a state-of-the-art facility in place. Getting there was a tough job, but the IATA CEIV Pharma certification is a great reward for our efforts and makes the whole team very proud.

“Our business is continuously changing and it’s our duty to keep up with these changes. Next to further developing our pharma handling capabilities, we are also constantly improving our processes and seeking for innovations that can make the difference in future cargo handling.”
