Swiss WorldCargo becomes IATA CEIV certified

July 24, 2018: Swiss WorldCargo has obtained full IATA CEIV Pharma certification extending to its entire network. In order to qualify for this certification, all its processes and knowledge for the transportation of pharma products were thoroughly reviewed by independent auditors.

Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s director general and CEO handed over the certificate to Michael Niggemann, chief financial officer and member of Management Board of Swiss International Air Lines.

“Quality, reliability and long-standing experience underscore all our efforts in shipping products around the globe, and we are delighted to have been recognised at not just our hub, but throughout our entire airline and network. Our commitment to upholding safety standards throughout our global network offers us opportunities to carry out pharmaceutical shipments around the world,” said Ashwin Bhat, head of cargo, Swiss WorldCargo.

“CEIV Pharma certification ensures these lifesaving products are handled using the best global standards of safety, security, compliance and efficiency,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s director general and CEO.

Previously, Swiss WorldCargo was the first company to establish the so-called “quality corridors,” or dedicated pharma traffic lanes between select destinations, that offer safe pharmaceutical shipments from airport to airport.

“With this certification, we are proud to be recognized for our commitment to consistent quality and safety, and we look forward to continuing to help facilitate deliveries of pharmaceutical products throughout the world and further enhance our leadership in this segment,” said the airline in a media statement.
