Dachser India is now CEIV Pharma certified, recognising the company for its excellence in transporting Life Science and Healthcare (LSH) products.
The certification, by the International Airport Transport Association (IATA), for Dachser’s Mumbai and Hyderabad branches is a significant achievement the logistics service provider says, given that only very few companies are currently accredited in India.
The Dachser Hyderabad branch is only the second logistics firm in the area to receive the recognition; while its Mumbai branch is only among a few in the region.
The Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) certification is a globally recognised certificate that acknowledges companies who excel in transporting Life Science and Healthcare (LSH) products.
It is a quality mark and an industry standard that recognises the logistics service provider as being able to safely, security and efficiently handle pharmaceutical shipments through the supply chain to assure product integrity and compliance with national and international guidelines.
Congratulating Dachser on its achievement is Vinoop Goel, IATA’s regional director for Airports and External Relations, Asia-Pacific. “The time and temperature sensitive nature of pharmaceutical products means the highest standards are needed make sure product integrity is maintained for such shipments.
“With India being a major supplier of pharmaceutical products, Dachser India’s CEIV Pharma certification will give pharmaceutical companies confidence and assurance that their cold-chain logistics requirements are being met,” he adds.
“Obtaining the CEIV Pharma certification is an important milestone for Dachser India,” says Huned Gandhi, managing director, Air & Sea Logistics for the Indian Subcontinent at Dachser. “It emphasises our continued focus for providing highly reliable logistic services to our valued customers in the LSH segment.
“Quality and efficiency have always been the cornerstones for our success and our teams are extremely proud to receive this accreditation from IATA”, Gandhi adds.
