ZURICH: July 24, 2018. Swiss WorldCargo has achieved validation under the International Air Transport Association's (IATA) Centre for Independent Validators (CEIV). The certification covers not only the airline but the organisation as a whole.

Swiss WorldCargo receives CEIV certificationThe certification was awarded following an extensive review from IATA recognised independent auditors. Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO (left of picture) handed over the certificate to Michael Niggemann, Chief Financial Officer and Member of Management Board of Swiss International Air Lines.

Swiss WorldCargo’s Zurich hub has already received the distinction of being CEIV certified in 2016, and is also recognised as GDP compliant by Swiss authorities Swissmedic. Based on meeting all necessary requirements, IATA now recognises Swiss WorldCargo’s globally consistent pharmaceutical handling and processes to safeguard product intergrity and maintain high quality standards. With this milestone, Swiss WorldCargo has now become part of a small group of airlines who have earned this recognition.

“I am incredibly proud of our achievement in attaining full CEIV pharma certification,” said Ashwin Bhat, Head of Cargo (right of picture). “Quality, reliability and long-standing experience underscore all our efforts in shipping products around the globe, and we are delighted to have been recognised at not just our hub, but throughout our entire airline and network. Our commitment to upholding safety standards throughout our global network offers us opportunities to carry out pharmaceutical shipments around the world. We are happy to play a valuable role in the shipment of pharmaceutical and life-saving products every day.”

“IATA congratulates Swiss WorldCargo on this important achievement, which demonstrates their commitment to the critical safeguarding of the integrity of pharma products. CEIV Pharma certification ensures these lifesaving products are handled using the best global standards of safety, security, compliance and efficiency,” said Alexandre de Juniac.

Swiss WorldCargo continues to develop a “pharma road-map” to improve its footprint in the important and growing segment of pharmaceuticals and life sciences. Previously, Swiss WorldCargo was the first company to establish the so-called “quality corridors,” or dedicated pharma traffic lanes between select destinations, that offer safe pharmaceutical shipments from airport to airport.
