CEVA Logistics adds five IATA Lithium battery certified stations


CEVA Logistics has expanded its controlled SKYCAPACITY program and added five more stations to its air freight locations certified under the CEIV Lithium Battery program.

Joining the Amsterdam and Hong Kong air freight stations in 2021, 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 (International Air Transport Association) 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 handle and store lithium batteries properly and validates on-site employees’ necessary training and expertise. 

CEVA Logistics has also purchased additional air capacity on key routes to expand its global SKYCAPACITY program. 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 the 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.

“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”, said Peter Penseel, chief operating officer, air freight, CEVA Logistics.
