Yusen Logistics will join the community, a group formed by Narita International Airport Corporation, to acquire joint CEIV Pharma certification at Narita International Airport in Japan.
CEIV Pharma certification (The Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics) is an air transport quality certification of pharmaceutical products formulated by The International Air Transport Association (IATA). IATA's CEIV Pharma comprehensive coverage of global GDP(*) as a global unified standard for pharmaceutical air transportation and helps the industry to improve the transport and handling of pharmaceutical products.
The establishment of the community, combined with joint CEIV Pharma certification, will enable it to provide even safer, high-quality pharmaceutical transportation. We will also participate in the community and aim to complete the certification.
