DEC 11, 2015: Swissport Cargo at Liège Airport in Belgium became the second Swissport Cargo station to complete IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CIEV) pharma certification. Swissport Cargo Brussels had earlier completed this certification programme. The certification aims at helping airlines, handlers and forwarders improve their share of the $60 billion a year pharmaceutical logistics market. The program, which includes implementation planning, on-site assessment, training and validation, marks a new standard in the pharmaceutical logistics industry and raises the benchmark for compliance with industry regulation. The CEIV certification program comprises numerous modules focusing on equipment requirements, storage facilities, pharmaceutical handling procedures and internal pharmaceutical handling know-how. By being compliant with these modules and the strict requirements of IATA’s new industry standard, Swissport Liege is in a position to meet the high standards set by the pharmaceutical industry and legislators globally. Patrick Minsart, Managing Director Swissport Cargo Services Belgium: “We are proud that Swissport Cargo Liege has successfully completed IATA’s CEIV pharma certification process, as this is another important milestone to continue putting Liège Airport on the map as a major logistics platform for the pharmaceutical industry. We thank Liège Airport for its great cooperation and support for enabling Swissport Cargo in Liège to get this globally recognized and most important certification.”
