Menzies Aviation, the global aviation logistics specialist, has announced that its cargo operations have received a further Center of Excellence of Independent Validators for Pharmaceutical Logistics accreditation (“CEIV Pharma”) as recognised by IATA.
This accreditation is for Menzies’ Melbourne base and marks the Company’s second accreditation in Australia. The accreditation is a formal endorsement to safely handle pharmaceuticals transported from all over the world into Melbourne.
This achievement is particularly important, as Melbourne is Menzies’ second largest cargo operation in the Oceania & South East Asia network.
Melbourne is the second station to be certified globally, with upcoming certifications expected in London Heathrow, and Amsterdam as they near conclusion of the process.
Alistair Reid, Executive Vice President, OSEA at Menzies Aviation said: “It is fantastic to see the progress we are making in Australia as we continue to invest in our air cargo services.
“For our Melbourne operations to be awarded the CEIV Pharma accreditation shortly after Sydney is a huge success and highlights our commitment to providing the highest standard of services and customer experience.
“Looking forward, we are excited to apply our learnings and experience to our bases globally so we can continue to provide the best service to our customers.”
