Kuehne + Nagel Receive IATA CEIV Pharma Certification

Kuehne + Nagel was recently awarded with IATA CEIV Pharma network certification of the entire global KN PharmaChain GxP compliant air network, currently including 86 locations and covering all continents.

“We are delighted being the first logistics provider receiving CEIV Pharma accreditation for our entire network. Achieving this confirms the high standards we set with our KN PharmaChain offer and together with IATA we even strengthened our product further now. We will drive this standard towards our supply chain partners as well for the benefit of our customers,” comments Marcel Fujike, Senior Vice President Products & Services Global Air Logistics at Kuehne + Nagel.

“Kuehne + Nagel’s strategy to join the CEIV Pharma certification demonstrates the importance of such programme for the air cargo and pharmaceutical industries. Our joint effort to certify the global KN PharmaChain network as well as the integration of the IATA CEIV Pharma Standards, like the CEIV checklist, in Kuehne + Nagel’s quality process is a key step forward to roll out this program worldwide. We congratulate Kuehne + Nagel for this achievement meeting shippers’ expectations in terms of standardisation and transparency across the supply chain. This will lead to a stronger, more competitive and enhanced air cargo service for this vital sector of the global economy,” said Nick Careen, IATA Senior Vice President, Airport, Passenger, Cargo and Security.
