Pharmaceutical shipments

We take the transportation of pharmaceuticals very seriously. That’s why we were the first carrier in the Middle East to be awarded IATA’s Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) certification in Pharmaceutical Logistics. Using specially-designed, temperature-controlled equipment, we ship pharmaceuticals in the quickest possible time, adhering to the highest compliance guidelines.
