Bolloré Logistics China receives CEIV Pharma by IATA
May 15, 2018: Bolloré Logistics China was recently awarded by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) at Pudong International Airport Logistics Park in Shanghai. With this, it has become one of the first transport and logistics companies in China to receive this certification.
Bolloré Logistics China adheres to all applicable pharmaceutical standards expected from pharmaceutical manufacturers in terms of facilities, equipment, operations and staff and being capable to provide seamless cool chain transportation all along the supply chain.
“This certification demonstrates our commitment on full compliance in handling pharmaceutical products and other temperature-sensitive commodities. Meanwhile, it will greatly reinforce our capability to further develop our core competency in transportation and logistics service for the healthcare industry,” said Jessie ZHOU, general manager of operations at Bolloré Logistics Shanghai.
The certification will allow Bolloré Logistics China to have a strategic advantage in the China healthcare logistics market with a stronger, more competitive and enhanced air cargo service. This shows Bolloré Logistics’ commitment to achieve the highest international quality standard in the global pharmaceutical supply chain for its customers. With Singapore, Australia, South Korea and now China being certified, the aim of Bolloré Logistics is to deploy this action throughout its global network with on-going certifications on other sites in the Asia-Pacific region such as China Hong Kong and Japan.
In Europe, Bolloré Logistics has already received the certification for its Paris Roissy CDG platform (France) as well as its sites in Brussels (Belgium), Frankfurt (Germany) and Lisbon (Portugal).
