WFS gains IATA certification for Paris CDG pharma centre

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has been awarded IATA CEIV Pharma certification for its new €10 million Pharma Centre at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport for the handling of temperature-controlled healthcare and life science products.  

Opened in September last year, the Centre is the only dedicated facility at the airport – the second largest air cargo gateway in Europe – with a team of dedicated and trained experts, temperature-controlled warehousing, and a transport fleet specifically adapted to guarantee pharmaceutical shipments integrity. 

Nearly 30 airlines and freight forwarders are already using the Pharma Centre, which is forecast to handle over 8,000 tonnes of products in 2020.  

Hugo Rodrigues, vice president cargo France at WFS, said: “Investing in the Pharma Centre supports WFS’ strategy to broaden our product offering by supporting the needs of both our airline and forwarding customers as well as their customers, which, in this case, are major pharmaceutical companies that demand the highest standards of compliance to protect the integrity of their products.”
