Celebi Cargo GmbH is Awarded by IATA CEIV Pharma Certification for Cargo/Warehouse Operations

As part of the preparation for an increasing flow of Pharmaceutical shipments and to keep our aim and focus on our planned growth, we are proud to announce the official award of IATA´s CEIV Pharma certificate. The air cargo industry is more and more calling for higher standards when transporting temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals. To cope with the growing expectation for standardization, Celebi Cargo GmbH has now successfully completed all necessary audits.

“With the opening of 3 state of the art temperature-controlled rooms earlier this year, it was always our aim to receive the formal CEIV certification, too”, states Christopher Licht, MD at Celebi Cargo GmbH in FRA. “The team has done an incredible job during the last months and it goes without saying that I am very proud of them”, he added.

In the meantime, the volumes for pharmaceutical air cargo have reached new heights and the current trend is ongoing. Therefore, Celebi has continued to invest in further growth, infrastructure as well as manpower.

“The needs for compliance and transparency are crucial for our customers and we realize the importance with every dialogue, especially since the start of the pandemic last year”, explains Markus Schmidt, who is heading the Sales & Marketing Department at Celebi Cargo GmbH since last year.

IATA created the Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma), to help organizations and the entire air cargo supply chain to get on the right track to achieve pharmaceutical handling excellence. CEIV Pharma addresses industry’s need for more safety, security, compliance and efficiency.
