CEVA Logistics adds Five IATA Lithium Battery Certified Stations

CEVA Logistics IATA Lithium Battery Certified Stations

Announced at the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) annual World Cargo Symposium (WCS), CEVA Logistics has expanded its SKYCAPACITY program and added five more stations to its network of air freight locations certified under the CEIV Lithium Battery program.

Joining the Amsterdam and Hong Kong air freight stations, CEVA’s locations in Frankfurt, Incheon, Shanghai (PVG), Singapore and Tokyo are now CEIV certified in handling lithium batteries. CEVA became the world’s first company to receive the new IATA CEIV in 2021 after teaming with IATA to support the development of the new certification program. CEVA expects to receive the certification at two U.S. locations in Atlanta and Detroit by the end of 2022, bringing its total number of certified stations to nine.

The certification confirms each facility’s ability to properly handle and store lithium batteries, as well as validates the necessary training and expertise of on-site employees. In addition, the company remains committed to providing its customers with peace of mind through a completely certified network, delivering air cargo services under its CEVA Batteries Solutions.

More owned, controlled capacity in a volatile market

CEVA Logistics has also purchased additional air capacity on key routes to expand its global SKYCAPACITY program. CEVA’s owned, controlled capacity offers consistent pricing and guaranteed capacity despite market peaks and lows. The company now controls more than 1,300 tons per week thanks to more than 50 flights serving 20 airports.

The CEVA network currently offers a variety of destinations to and from North and South America, Europe and Asia Pacific. The owned, controlled network spans multiple carriers and includes freighter, pax freighter and passenger capacity — all available with leading management, tracking and customs services. The network is also available as a spot cargo solution for customers.

Says Peter Penseel, Chief Operating Officer of Air Freight, CEVA Logistics: “We’re continuing to expand our global network as well as the quality and safety of our air transport services. With the improved SKYCAPACITY program and our newly CEIV-certified air stations, we have strongly increased our ability to co-create value with our clients across a wide range of industries.”
