Kuehne + Nagel Awarded IATA CEIV Certification for Entire PharmaChain
Kuehne + Nagel and IATA announce first-in-the-industry IATA CEIV re-certification of the entire KN PharmaChain GxP Compliant Air Logistics network, currently including 94 locations and covering all continents.
Development of IATA CEIV Pharma is a response to the demands of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and sets the standard for pharmaceutical shipments via airfreight.
In 2017, Kuehne + Nagel was the first to achieve IATA CEIV Pharma certification for its entire KN PharmaChain Air network.
During the transportation process, KN PharmaChain customers can additionally benefit from real-time monitoring and visibility through the use of active transmitting sensors and proactive intervention via the dedicated 24/7/365 Pharma CareTeam.
At each stage of the shipment, Kuehne + Nagel’s highly trained pharma experts ensure quality, end-to-end visibility and regulatory compliance.
Reinier Danckaarts, Global Head of Air Logistics Product Development, comments: “We are proud to be the one and only logistics service provider that has received CEIV Pharma re-certification for the entire pharma network.
"Achieving this milestone proves the highest standards we have set with our KN PharmaChain service offering, which translates into superior quality and compliance of our customers’ pharmaceuticals and medical equipment shipments."
