Mumbai Int’l Airport earns CEIV Pharmaceutical certification


Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) has constantly strived towards achieving operational efficiency by imbibing technological developments relevant to its expertise and infusing them in all processes and procedures that are implemented at the airport. The latest feather in the cap is earning the CEIV Pharma certification.


The unique infrastructure design that MIAL’s cargo terminal offers has played a crucial role in enhancing the transhipment business in the region, offering exclusive handling for bonded cargo. This has strengthened Mumbai’s position as a prime location for handling cargo across the country, especially for pharmaceutical products.


With an endeavour to create a high quality supply chain for pharmaceutical and healthcare products, MIAL recently joined "Pharma Aero", a new global initiative in the pharmaceutical industry that fosters the development of pharmaceutical routes between CEIV-certified airport communities.


As a part of MIAL’s strategy to create reliable pharmaceutical transportation passages internationally, the airport has partnered with Brussels, an active CEIV airport, founder member of "Pharma Aero" and one of the major international hubs for pharmaceutical air transport. This partnership aims to facilitate knowledge-sharing on the best handling practices and minimising temperature excursion while implementing CEIV recommendations that will strengthen the ex-im supply chain between Mumbai and Brussels.


In the near future, MIAL plans to form strategic tie-ups with partners across Europe and the US, developing CEIV Pharma-certified trade lanes from Mumbai to potential pharmaceutical destinations. This will offer pharmaceutical customers speedy and efficient transport for high value and temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical cargo.


In line with executing strategies that are essential to showcase the airport’s credibility, MIAL commissioned the new "Export Heavy and Bonded Cargo Terminal" at the onset of 2017. Adding 3,00,000 tonnes of cargo per annum to the overall capacity, MIAL is now moving towards doubling its existing capacity by 2019. Therefore, strategic steps like capacity enhancement and CEIV certification are a validation of the airport’s commitment towards providing the highest standards of handling to its stakeholders, emphasised a release.
