ATLANTA: July 10, 2017. Delta Cargo has become the first U.S. major carrier to be awarded IATA's Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Pharma logistics Certification.

Delta Cargo PharmaTogether with Air France, KLM and Martinair, the airline said it has created a CEIV Pharma network linking Atlanta with other existing certified air cargo companies in Amsterdam, Brussels, Milan, Paris and Rome.

"The safe and efficient transportation of pharma products for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry is a key priority for us, as is the health and safety of patients who depend on them," said Gareth Joyce, president-Cargo and senior vice president Airport Customer Service. "This award really opens up our flights across the globe to the Pharma industry which can now rely on Delta, Air France and KLM for their speed, consistency and efficiency in delivering high-value, time-sensitive, temperature-controlled products right across the network."

The airline said the new certification creates a global trade lane for the pharma industry by combining the networks of the French, Dutch and U.S. carriers.

Nick Careen, IATA vice president Airport, Passenger, Cargo and Security said Delta's certification was boost to the North American freight market that accounts for 20 percent of total global trade.

North American airlines posted annual freight tonne-kilometer growth of 19.3 percent year-on-year in May – the fastest pace since August 2010. "As we have noted before, the strength of the U.S. dollar is continuing to support U.S. inbound airfreight," observed IATA economist David Oxley. "Data from the U.S. Census Bureau show that imports by air from China, for example, increased by 14 percent year-on- year in April. On the other hand, the strong dollar is also keeping outbound flows under pressure," he added.
