Saudia Cargo collaborates with IATA to ferry bioscience products, pharma

Saudia Cargo has collaborated with IATA for its Center of Excellence for Independent Validators for Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) Certification for safe air transport and handling of pharma shipments. Teddy Zebitz, Saudia Cargo CEO and Frederic Leger, IATA Senior VP Commercial Products and Services, signed the agreement at the recently concluded IATA World Cargo Symposium in London. For the next few months, Saudia Cargo will prepare across multiple aspects of its operations, particularly on staff competency to handle pharma, comply with IATA’s requirements for CEIV Pharma Certification on top of Good Distribution Practices, stated the release. The process is meant to ensure critical healthcare cargo such as COVID vaccines and other pharma and bioscience products are not compromised while they transported by air.
