CEVA Logistics has added five more stations to its network of air freight locations certified under the CEIV Lithium Battery program.
The logistics operator announced this at the IATA World Cargo Symposium last week.
CEVA’s locations in Frankfurt, Incheon, Shanghai (PVG), Singapore and Tokyo will now join the Amsterdam and Hong Kong air freight stations as CEIV certified in the handling of lithium batteries.
The company also expects to receive the certification at two US locations in Atlanta and Detroit by the end of 2022, bringing its total number of certified stations to nine.
CEVA became the world’s first company to receive the new IATA CEIV certification in 2021 after teaming with IATA to support the development of the new program
The certification confirms each facility’s ability to properly handle and store lithium batteries, as well as validates the necessary training and expertise of on-site employees.
CEVA Logistics has also purchased additional air capacity on key routes to expand its global SKYCAPACITY program. It now controls more than 1,300 tonnes per week with more than 50 flights serving 20 airports.
