Announced today at the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) annual World Cargo Symposium (WCS) in Dublin, Ireland, CEVA Logistics is the world’s first company to receive IATA’s new CEIV Lithium Battery certification after teaming with IATA to support the development of the new certification program. CEVA’s Amsterdam and Hong Kong air freight stations are now CEIV certified in the handling of lithium batteries.
The certification confirms each facility’s ability to properly handle and store lithium batteries, as well as validates the necessary training and expertise of on-site employees. CEVA Logistics has plans to extend its certifications beyond Amsterdam and Hong Kong, with additional certified locations expected in Asia, Europe and the Americas. The company is committed to providing its customers with peace of mind through a completely certified network delivering air cargo services under its CEVA Batteries Solutions.
