DACHSER’s Mumbai and Hyderabad branches are among the few companies in India to receive the prestigious Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics certification recognizing exemplary operations in transporting Life Science and Healthcare (LSH) products. Such products are both temperature and time-sensitive, requiring meticulous, accurate, and high standards in monitoring and handling to ensure product quality.
“Congratulations to DACHSER India on their CEIV Pharma certification. The time and temperature sensitive nature of pharmaceutical products means the highest standards are needed to make sure product integrity is maintained for such shipments,” said Vinoop Goel, IATA’s Regional Director for Airports and External Relations, Asia-Pacific. “With India being a major supplier of pharmaceutical products, DACHSER India’s CEIV Pharma certification will give pharmaceutical companies confidence and assurance that their cold-chain logistics requirements are being met.”
Difficult to obtain, the CEIV Pharma certification is earned by companies implementing efficient, safe, and excellence in transporting LSH products. Currently, DACHSER’s Hyderabad branch is one of two companies in the region to boast the accreditation. Through a strenuous audit ensuring compliance among all all facilities, equipment, operations and staff, DACHSER applied for the certification with the goal of adding to its already extensive history in handling pharma products.
