The certification is recognition that the company conforms to the International Air Transport Association's (IATA) pharma handling procedures and standards, and is 'capable of providing seamless cool chain transportation across the entire supply chain'.
Bollore Logistics said the CEIV Pharma certification will enable it to tap into the healthcare market in Greater China and deliver a 'more competitive air cargo service' in the area.
Said Jane Chan, general manager of Bollore Hong Kong: 'This certification demonstrates our commitment to full compliance in handling pharmaceutical products and other temperature-sensitive commodities. It will greatly reinforce our capability to further develop our core competencies in transportation and logistics services for the healthcare industry.'
Bollore Logistics has already received IATA CEIV Pharma certification for its sites in Brussels, Chicago, Frankfurt, Lisbon, Melbourne, Osaka, Paris, Seoul, Shanghai and Singapore.
