dnata awarded IATA’s CEIV Pharma and Live Animal certifications

Air services provider dnata has been certified by the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) for pharma and live animal handling processes at its cargo facilities and animal care and inspection centre at Brussels Airport.

Dnata Belgium’s managing director Stef Vanbinst said: “These certifications demonstrate our team’s ability to handle precious cargo under the strictest international standards, consistently providing best-in-class services to our customers.”

The CEIV Pharma program was created by IATA to provide a globally consistent and recognised pharmaceutical product handling certification that focuses on airfreight and temporary storage.

IATA’s global head of cargo Brendan Sullivan added: “The safe and efficient transportation of temperature sensitive Pharma products and live animals is a key priority for our industry. We congratulate dnata for achieving both CEIV Pharma and Live Animals certification at their Brussels hub. Shippers can enjoy additional reassurance that their facilities, equipment, operations and staff comply with all applicable standards, regulations and guidelines.”

dnata opened its cargo centre at Brussels Airport in 2019, “substantially increasing” cargo capacity in the Benelux states. The company has also been operating the Animal Care & Inspection Centre offering a 2000 m² facility for the handling of live animals at BRU.
