Lufthansa Cargo Awarded CEIV Certification

Lufthansa Cargo has been awarded CEIV certification from IATA.

Independent specialists reviewed the airline’s processes when transporting pharmaceuticals and assessed that Lufthansa Cargo met the criteria for CEIV certification. As such, Lufthansa Cargo is now one of only six airlines worldwide to have received this certification. The Lufthansa Cargo Cool Center in Frankfurt was also successfully certified.

“Pharmaceutical shipments are extremely challenging and demand maximum reliability from airlines. Adhering to the required temperature is crucial to ensure medication can be used as planned following shipping”, comments Alexis von Hoensbroech, Board Member Product and Sales at Lufthansa Cargo. “Being one of the first airlines worldwide to receive IATA’s new international certificate is the fruit of the work we have done on our Cool/td product over the last few years”.

“In achieving IATA CEIV Pharma certification across its global network, Lufthansa Cargo joins an elite group of six airlines whose customers can have even more confidence that their pharmaceuticals will be delivered in impeccable condition”, said Glyn Hughes, IATA Global Head of Cargo. “IATA has created CEIV Pharma to help airlines, handlers and forwarders to be compliant with international regulations and to create one global standard for transporting pharmaceuticals.”
