Transom gets CEIV Pharma certification

16 Sep 2020

Transom SATS Cargo, the premier cargo operations handler at the Muscat International Airport, has achieved IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) certification. CEIV is an industry-leading certification that safeguards the integrity of healthcare products across the air cargo ecosystem.

The certification recognises the quality of Transom SATS’ operations, world-class facilities, state-of-the-art technology and warehouses, and industry best practices to ensure that all pharmaceutical shipments meet the highest international standards for handling pharmaceutical logistics.

Eng Naif Ali al Abri, acting CEO of Transom, said, “Obtaining the CEIV Pharma certification was an important achievement for Transom. This achievement fits within the company’s framework to achieve the highest quality standards and services for commercial expansion and to enable airports across the country to position Oman to become a global transhipment hub.”

Transom SATS Cargo, a part of Oman Aviation Group, operates a cargo terminal of 32,000 sq m with an annual handling capacity of 350,000 tonnes. Transom’s air cargo routes and volumes are rapidly expanding and a strategic vision is in place to raise the total volume of air cargo throughput from the current 240,000 tonnes to more than 730,000 tonnes per year by 2030, and subsequently 1.5mn tonnes per year by 2040 at the Muscat International Airport.
