Delta Cargo expands CEIV approved stations in Europe

Delta Cargo is now offering CEIV approved facilities at seven locations across Europe, with the recent addition of Dusseldorf airport to the network. These facilities are operated in conjunction with ground handling companies and joint venture partners.  

Delta is the first U.S. global passenger carrier to receive IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Pharma logistics Certification. To date, it has CEIV at the Delta HQ level and at the Delta self-handled ATL station which connects Europe where Delta and its customers enjoy CEIV certified ground handlers in Amsterdam, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Milan, Paris-CDG and Rome creating a trans-Atlantic CEIV network to the United States. Including the CEIV scope Delta offers 50 DL Pharma approved stations around the globe offering four tailored Pharma options, with a variety of containers and coolers, across the network.   

“Delta has made significant investments in Pharma facilities across its global network, so as to ensure that we are compliant with the highest industry standards,” says Shawn Cole, Delta’s Vice President – Cargo.  “Our priority boarding and quick connection times minimize exposure to outside temperatures ensuring the integrity of the product – vital for transporting medicine to patients.”
