More space for lithium batteries in the air
The news was announced at the current International Air Transport Association’s (Iata) annual World Cargo Symposium (WCS), but not by a classic aviation company.
Instead, Ceva Logistics has expanded its owned air cargo programme by adding five more stations to its network of air freight locations certified under the Ceiv lithium battery programme.
Joining the Amsterdam and Hong Kong air freight stations from 2021, Ceva’s locations in Frankfurt, Incheon, Shanghai (PVG), Singapore and Tokyo are now Ceiv certified in the handling of lithium batteries.
The company is expecting to receive the certification at two US locations in Atlanta and Detroit by the end of 2022, bringing its total number of certified stations to nine. (sh)
