Cathay Pacific Services Limited (CPSL), subsidiary of Cathay Pacific, announced it’s one of the first companies to receive the IATA CEIV Fresh Certification, next to Hong Kong Airport Authority. The companies were recognized at the IATA World Cargo Symposium earlier this week.
The certification focuses primarily on the treatment and transportation of perishables while measuring the speed and efficiencies of stakeholders in the Hong Kong International Airport.
The Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal utilizes innovative logistics solutions while streamlining workflows and credits these elements for quick turnaround on the group’s Fresh LIFT shipments.
“India, Sri Lanka and South Africa all are big markets for shipment of perishable products like sea food, fresh vegetables, fruits and even fresh flowers. Hong Kong, Japan and Korea are some of the important trade lanes for FreshLIFT. And with this feat at our Cargo Terminal, we will provide superior value, agile service and expert handling to our customers for airfreight of perishables,” said Rajesh Menon, Cathay Pacific Regional Head of Cargo for South Asia, Middle East and Africa.
