Delta Cargo is now offering CEIV approved facilities at seven locations across Europe, with the recent addition of Dusseldorf airport to the network. These facilities are operated in conjunction with joint venture partners Air France-KLM.
Delta is the first U.S. global passenger carrier to receive IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Pharma logistics Certification. To date, Delta has 50 Pharma approved stations around the globe with seven CEIV approved facilities in Europe all connected to Delta’s largest cargo operation in Atlanta, which is also CEIV certified. The CEIV stations in Europe are Amsterdam, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Milan, Paris-CDG and Rome creating a trans-Atlantic CEIV network to the United States.
Delta offers four tailored Pharma options, with a variety of containers and coolers, across the network. Plus, in Frankfurt, Delta offers temperature controlled carts for the ramp operation which facilitate the transportation of shipments in a temperature controlled environment between the aircraft and the warehouse.
“Delta has made significant investments in Pharma facilities across its global network, so as to ensure that we are compliant with the highest industry standards,” said Shawn Cole, Delta’s Vice President – Cargo. “Our priority boarding and quick connection times minimize exposure to outside temperatures ensuring the integrity of the product – vital for transporting medicine to patients.”
