…first within the Puerto Rico Life Sciences Air Cargo Community, that is. The Puerto Ricon logistics provider has specialized in pharma logistics and temperature-controlled solutions across its service portfolio of air, sea, warehousing, and ground transportation freight services. With its newly-received CEIV Pharma certification, ETH Cargo will now also help other, smaller companies achieve the same quality standards, by participating in Community-hosted CEIV training initiatives. “The Departamento de Desarrollo Económico y Comercio (DDEC), who have supported the Community since its launch last year, rallied for government funding to invest in CEIV certifications across the Community, securing an 80% subsidy for 8 organizations,” the press release reveals. More than 40 members participate in the Community. They represent stakeholders across the air cargo supply chain, and include pharmaceutical and medical manufacturers, forwarders, airports, airlines, and representatives of DDEC. The goal is to increase and improve the quality of airfreight and pharma operations on the island.

Sascha Herzig, Chief Executive Officer, ETH Cargo, explained: “The CEIV Pharma certification is a guarantee that we handle our customers’ cargo in line with industry standards, ensuring it arrives intact and avoiding any damage. ETH Cargo has handled temperature-controlled pharma cargo for many years, some of which is life-saving medication – it is paramount that we keep the integrity of the cool chain, and this certification is proof of our dedication to doing just that. The cold supply chain is only as strong as its weakest link. The training systems that the Community is initiating, will ensure that CEIV Pharma standards are implemented and maintained across the hub. This accomplishment, which was time-consuming and demanding, was achieved with the support of key ETH Cargo employees, who I wish to personally thank for their dedication.”
