UPS is not leaving anything to chance when it comes to handling and moving life-saving pharmaceuticals as it secured IATA’s CEIV Pharma certification for its operations in Japan and South Korea.
The forwarder earlier announced this week that it secured IATA CEIV Pharma Certification for its freight forwarding operations at Narita International Airport and Kansai International Airport, as well as Incheon International Airport in South Korea.
UPS said the certification validates cold chain freight service offering at the four locations as being ‘aligned to global best practices.’
The company went through rigorous preparations across its operations to secure the accreditation, including product handling and transportation, staff competency, procedures, risk assessment, and infrastructure.
UPS first secured the certification in Asia for its freight forwarding operations at Changi International Airport in Singapore in 2019. It plans to pursue certifications for other locations, including Shanghai, Beijing and Sydney.
