Air France KLM Martinair Cargo Receives Pharmaceutical Logistics Excellence Certificate

The International Air Transport Association has awarded its Center of Excellence for Independent Validators certificate for pharmaceutical operations in Paris and Amsterdam to Air France KLM Martinair Cargo.

"Transporting and handling pharmaceuticals presents both challenges and opportunities for stakeholders in the logistics industry," said Glyn Hughes, IATA's Head of Cargo. "Recognizing this, IATA has created CEIV Pharma, to help airlines, handlers and forwarders to be compliant with international regulations, and make airfreight the modal choice for the transportation of pharmaceutical products. After successfully undergoing a rigorous assessment against national and international standards, we are delighted to recognize Air France Cargo and its CDG station as well as KLM Cargo and its AMS station as CEIV Pharma Certified. AFKL is the first airline group to complete this process at two different hubs at the same time."
