On 27 January 2017, Bolloré Logistics received the IATA CEIV Pharma certification from Alexandre de Juniac, CEO of IATA, in the presence of the President of ADP, Augustin de Romanet.
In a pilot phase of the IATA CEIV Pharma certification process for one year with IATA, Bolloré Logistics becomes the first transport and logistics company in France to receive this certification for its Paris Roissy CDG platform (France) after having received it for its sites in Brussels (Belgium), Frankfurt (Germany) and Lisbon (Portugal).
The aim of Bolloré Logistics is to deploy this action throughout its global network with certifications in progress on other sites in Europe, but also in other regions of the world, including Africa which is fully involved in the implementation of this certification within the Group (Singapore, Johannesburg, Chicago, amongst others).
“By certifying our hubs around the world we are able to guarantee our customers airfreight transportation respecting the cold chain and the strict quality standards required by the pharmaceutical industry. This certification demonstrates our ability to standardize our end-to-end processes from origin to final destination,” said Brice Bellin, healthcare director Europe of Bolloré Logistics.
This is a new success for the Group, which confirms its commitment to apply the highest international quality standard in the global pharmaceutical transport chain of its customers, by improving processes and infrastructures in compliance with CEIV Pharma standards.
With its modern and innovative facilities, the excellence of its quality management system, the expertise of its teams and its multiple certifications, Bolloré Logistics is considered as a major global player in the transport of pharmaceutical products.
“Cold chain management, especially with healthcare products, must meet the requirements of quality and reliability. Shippers expect standardization and transparency throughout the supply chain and want to be assured that facilities are equipped and operated throughout the highest standards. The CEIV Pharma certification meets all these requirements and more. Bolloré Logistics took up this CEIV Pharma certification challenge. Their success will result in a stronger and more competitive airfreight service for this vital sector of the global economy”, said Nick Careen senior vice president, airport, passenger, cargo and security of IATA.
