Avianca Cargo is certified 100% fresh for the handling of perishable goods
Avianca Cargo announced that it is the first airline in the Americas to be certified by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Fresh program to achieve quality standards and excellence for the transport of perishable goods. IATA representatives officially presented the CEIV Fresh certificate to Avianca Cargo during a ceremony at the airline’s facilities at Miami International Airport. Miami and Bogota are the airline’s first certified stations, and Medellin and Quito will also be CEIV Fresh certified by the end of 2022.
CEIV Fresh is based on the IATA Perishable Goods Regulations, which combine regulatory and operational input from government and industry experts. With this certification, IATA certifies that Avianca Cargo meets the highest industry standards for food safety and waste prevention throughout the supply chain.
“At Avianca Cargo, we constantly seek to operate to the highest quality standards in every process we carry out. This is a very important milestone and we are very proud to receive this certification from IATA. “Miami International Airport and all of our allies are a fundamental part of the perishable transportation supply chain. We continue to transform our business and want to continue to be our customers’ best ally in moving their time-sensitive products and at the temperature in the highest quality standards. We continue to work every day to promote the development of Latin American economies and to be a benchmark of quality in the region”, said Gabriel Oliva, CEO of Avianca Cargo.
