Logistics powerhouse Dachser has been awarded IATA CEIV Pharma certification at its Frankfurt Airport station.
The station was achieved through internal and external training, a review of procedures for handling temperature-controlled life science and healthcare products, and an assessment of processes by two separate independent validators.
Dachser chief operating officer for air and sea logistics, Jochen Muller said the IATA certification is a “key pillar” of the company’s global air freight strategy.
Head of global airfreight, Timo Stroh added the company will continue to expand its network capabilities as “business field solution life science and healthcare over the coming year”.
IATA global head of cargo, Glyn Hughes said: “IATA is very pleased to recognise the growing interest in aviation leaders such as Dachser to ensure the best standards are applied in the transportation of sensitive pharmaceutical products.”
