DHL Global Forwarding’s Shanghai station is the latest to achieve IATA’s CEIV pharma certification.
The certification of Shanghai comes shortly after the forwarder’s stations in Dublin and Leipzig achieved the quality award.
DHL started to certify its global stations according to the IATA CEIV Pharma Standard in the third quarter of 2016.
“Following independent audits by third parties and training courses for employees on site, the DHL Air Thermonet station in Shanghai received the quality label,” the company said.
“Thereby DHL Global Forwarding enhances transportation and storage quality levels of pharmaceutical goods and the DHL Air Thermonet station exceeds usual quality standards.”
The location in Shanghai comprises 1,650 sq m, of which 1,405 sq m are available in the air-import warehouse and 245 sq m are available in the air-export warehouse for temperature storage.
