Menzies celebrates 7th IATA CEIV Pharma certification

And a premiere too, since this time the certificate was awarded to Menzies Aviation-Siginon Aviation over in Nairobi, Kenya, making it the first of Menzies’ stations in the Middle East, Africa and Asia (MEAA) region to receive the accreditation. The newly expanded facility now joins the IATA CEIV Pharma list of stations which include Sydney (SYD), Melbourne (MEL), London Heathrow (LHR) and Budapest (BUD) and Amsterdam (AMS) airports. The accreditation is the crowning final step to the cargo building expansion project that was recently undertaken at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. It now measures an impressive 21,000 m² (up from 15,000 m²), and boasts increased cold storage (up from 90 pallet positions to 250) as well as new docking stations for refrigerated trucks. A new yard area offers improved traffic flow management, and additional security cameras and lighting provide better security.

The CEIV Pharma certificate is valid for three years, and is a clear quality stamp that shows that the company works according to IATA’s stringent standards. Independent Validators audit the processes within the warehouse and judge the company’s efforts and skills. The certificate shows that Menzies Aviation-Siginon Aviation’s has a best-in-class approach when it comes to handling high-value, time-sensitive, and temperature-controlled pharmaceutical products.

Charles Wyley, EVP Middle East, Africa and Asia, Menzies Aviation, said: “We’re immensely proud that our expanded warehouse at NBO has become the first cargo facility in the MEAA region to receive IATA’s coveted CEIV Pharma accreditation. NBO joins a growing list of Menzies cargo locations which have now been awarded this sought-after recognition. With pharmaceutical shipment volumes continuing to increase across the world, we are committed to effectively meeting demand while upholding the very highest cargo handling standards that this accreditation requires.”
