National Air Cargo receives CEIV Lithium Batteries

National Air Cargo has been awarded IATA CEIV Lithium Batteries certification by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

Receiving its certificate at the Air Cargo Europe trade fair in Munich, Germany, CEIV Lithium Battery verifies compliance with IATA regulations for transporting lithium batteries.

Certification involves validating and assessing processes, procedures and training programmes to confirm that the risks associated with transporting lithium batteries are being managed effectively.

Undergoing certification confirmed that National Air Cargo adheres to industry best practices for the safe transport of dangerous goods and complies with IATA’s Lithium Battery Shipping Guidelines among other relevant regulations.

Brendan Sullivan, Global Head of Cargo at IATA, says, “Handling and transporting dangerous goods needs special care. Achieving CEIV Lithium Batteries certification means NAC's customers can benefit from extra assurance that their cargo is in safe hands.”

Chris Alf, Chairman of National Air Cargo Holdings, adds, “We are extremely grateful to receive the CEIV Lithium Batteries certification, which recognises our commitment to ensuring the safe transport of specified dangerous goods. This recognition is also an enhanced safety assurance to our government and commercial customers availing our premium charter services for transporting classified dangerous goods including lithium batteries.”

Lithium Batteries is National’s second CEIV certificate after Pharma, which it received in 2021.
