Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP Cargo) becomes the first carrier to pass the IATA CEIV Pharma re-certification process for its hub operations in Amsterdam and Paris, as well as the Air France and KLM airline processes.
This follows from the Franco-Dutch carrier’s original certification three years ago – also the first in those airports – which comes with a three-year ‘best before date’, before recertification is required.
AFKLMP Cargo says it continues to focus on the pharmaceutical business as a top priority for the group, by not only investing in its digital transformation but also increasing its quality standards and its cool chain solutions.
“Pharma is a top priority for our airline group,” says Marcel de Nooijer, executive vice president of Air France KLM Martinair Cargo.
Enrica Calonghi, global head of Pharmaceutical Logistics at Air France KLM Martinair Cargo: “IATA CEIV Pharma re-certification confirms that our group aims to position itself not only as a leader in innovation and transparency, but also through putting care into healthcare by continually improving our processes and facilities.”
Similarly Nina Heinz, global head of Network & Quality at DHL Global Forwarding: “In our common quest to ensure product integrity and patient safety for life sciences and healthcare, it is critical that all of our partners throughout the supply chain adhere to the same highest service and quality standards.”
