Swissport The Netherlands receives IATA CEIV Pharma Certification
Jul 21, 2017: A subsidiary of Swissport International, Swissport The Netherlands, receives the IATA CEIV certificate for pharmaceutical logistics at Amsterdam Airport, Schiphol. This certification reflects Swissport’s dedication to offer excellent life science and healthcare shipment handling services and will increase its contribution to the Pharma Gateway Amsterdam – a program established in 2016 to position Schiphol as the best European pharma hub.
With the increasing flow of life science and healthcare shipments over the past few years, maintaining a stable and secure supply chain requires specific equipment, storage facilities, harmonised handling procedures and above all, strong cooperation among the cool chain partners. Swissport The Netherlands started to develop a dedicated product line for the handling of life science and health care shipments. With the recent acquisition of Terminal 9, the scope for this product line was broadened, and today, all of Swissport’s operational activities in the Netherlands (both Terminal 9 and 11) are successfully awarded by the IATA CEIV certification.
“The certificate is a validation of the hard work that our team put in the pharma product. But that is not where we stop. In cooperation with our valued customers, we believe that the pharma product is a product line with continuous improvement cycles. This means that we will keep investing in training our staff, maintaining the best-controlled pharma facilities and further develop procedures to ensure a secure and high-quality pharma chain,” said Jeroen Giling, Director Cargo, Swissport The Netherlands.
Swissport International Ltd. provides ground services for more than 230 million passengers and handles 4.3 million tonnes of cargo a year on behalf of 835 companies. With a workforce of more than 62,000 personnel, Swissport is active at more than 280 stations in 48 countries across five continents and generates consolidated operating revenue of EUR 2.7 billion.
