LATAM Cargo Chile achieves CEIV Pharma re-certification

LATAM Cargo Chile has announced its successful re-certification by the Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma).

During 2023, they renovated and improved their cold chain facilities and carried out a comprehensive technological upgrade on all existing equipment in the cold storage warehouses, accompanied by significant improvements in doors and electric forklifts to ensure the optimal delivery of products requiring precise temperature control.

Diego Garcia, COO LATAM Cargo Chile commented: “I am delighted to announce that the assessment was concluded with 100% compliance and zero findings, further validating our meticulous approach to compliance and the effectiveness of our quality management systems.

“This recertification is not just about our achievements, but it underscores the spirit of collaboration that defines LATAM Cargo, solidifying our position as trusted leaders in pharmaceutical transportation in the Latin American region.

“This reaffirmed commitment aims to satisfy our clients better, ensuring that their needs are met with the highest standards of safety and reliability.”

Peter Cerda, IATA’s Regional Vice President The Americas, said: “Air cargo plays a critical role for both exports and imports for many industries in Latin America, especially since other modes of transport often are not viable alternatives.

“Pharmaceuticals are a case in point, as these rely on air transport for speed, consistency and efficiency in ensuring that these high-value, time-sensitive, temperature-controlled products reach their destination safe and sound.

“IATA’s CEIV Pharma Certification addresses the industry’s need for more safety, security, compliance and efficiency, through a globally consistent and recognized pharmaceutical-product handling certification.

“It is wonderful to see LATAM Cargo’s CEIV Pharma’s recertification as it demonstrates the industry’s commitment to offering safe and secure air cargo transportation”.
