posted on 26th October 2020 by Eddie Saunders

BBE has announced they have been certified under the International Air Transport Association’s pharmaceutical logistics seal of excellence, CEIV Pharma (Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics). This designation confirms both Freight Forwarding and Ground Handler services meet the highest standards in the industry and certifies the quality of their services for delivery of healthcare products across Canada and internationally, including regions with the most challenging logistics. The certification also supports an initiative with the Edmonton International Airport to develop a pharmaceutical logistics community at the airport, a first in Canada.

“Achieving this international certification has been a major priority for EIA’s cargo operations and we’re thrilled that a critical partner for us, BBE, has now achieved both certifications needed for its CEIV status. We want to congratulate our friends and partners who have worked hard on this. It will help us continue to make Edmonton a global shipping destination for temperature sensitive cargo, including bio-pharma and agricultural products,” stated Myron Keehn, Vice President, Air Service & Business Development, Edmonton International Airport.
