Fraport gains IATA accreditation to handle pharma products at Frankfurt
Date:2018-05-03 Readers:
THE International Air Transport Association (IATA) has awarded CEIV pharma certification to Frankfurt airport operator Fraport AG for the ramp handling of pharmaceuticals.

Fraport handled 100,000 tonnes of vaccines, drugs, medicines and other pharmaceutical products at the German airport in 2017.

Senior executive vice president of ground services at Fraport Martin Bien said: "With the CEIV Pharma certification from IATA, Frankfurt airport is one of the largest pharmaceutical hubs in the world to offer a fully certified ground handling process - now with ramp handling also included."

Fraport AG's ramp handling division has been operating a transporter vehicle for temperature-controlled shipments for 20 years. The special vehicle allows transportation of main and lower-deck units in a range from minus 30 to 30 degrees Celsius. Moreover, the transporter is equipped with an electronic temperature monitoring system and tracking options.

"We see pharmaceutical transportation as a growth market for the future," added Mr Bien. "Receiving IATA's CEIV certification underscores that Fraport has the requisite infrastructure and the necessary expertise to accommodate this growth. We are well prepared for future requirements of the pharmaceutical industry and forwarding companies."
