Avianca Cargo announced that it is the first airline in the Americas certified by the International Air Transport Association's (IATA) Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Fresh program for achieving the highest standards of quality and excellence for the transportation 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 IATA's perishable cargo regulations, which combine regulatory and operational inputs 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 are constantly seeking to operate under the highest quality standards in each process we carry out. This is a highly relevant milestone, and we are very proud to receive this certification from IATA. Miami International Airport and all our allies are a fundamental part of the supply chain of perishable transport. We continue transforming our business, and we want to continue being the best ally of our clients by transporting their products that are sensitive to time and temperature under the highest quality standards. We continue to work every day to promote the development of Latin American economies and be a quality reference in the region", said Gabriel Oliva, Avianca Cargo CEO.
