Bollore becomes first company in Korea to gain IATA CEIV Pharma

Bollore Logistics Korea has become the first transport and logistics company in South Korea to achieve IATA CEIV Pharma certification.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) is a globally recognised and standardised certificate for healthcare airfreight shipments, ensuring proper handling of pharmaceutical products requiring temperature control.

The Korean company began certification process in the third quarter of 2015, and gained the certificate on 31 January 2018.

Bollore Logistics Korea managing director, Thibault Janssens says: “We are proud to be the first CEIV Pharma logistics company independently certified in Korea. The certification reinforces our commitment to provide the highest standards of professionalism in handling the transportation of high-value pharmaceutical products under strict temperature and time-sensitive conditions.”

The company says certification in South Korea will give it a competitive advantage in the healthcare logistics market with enhanced air cargo services, and having certified operations in Australia and Singapore, Bollore says Hong Kong and Japan are next on the list in the Asia Pacific region.
