UTi Worldwide awarded CEIV Pharma cold chain certification

UTi Worldwide announced that it has been awarded CEIV Pharma certification by IATA’s Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) at Brussels Airport.

“With this certification, UTi provides clients a competitive advantage in assuring cold chain integrity beyond the Good Distribution Practices to which the rest of the air freight industry adheres,” said Phil Abbate, UTi Global Vice President, Pharmaceutical & Healthcare. “The CEIV Pharma cold chain certification programme ensures integrity at every step of the supply chain, including temperature cargo handling and operations for temperature sensitive cargo.”

CEIV Pharma certification requires a series of processes including on-site assessment, implementation planning, training, and validation. The programme focuses on equipment requirements, adequate storage facilities, efficient and effective pharmaceutical handling procedures and raising internal pharmaceutical handling know how.
