The Mumbai International Airport has achieved this quality milestone for Pharma Logistics following successful completion of training courses, on-site assessment, and complex validation processes. Acknowledging the importance of this initiative, MIAL has initiated the certification process in a community approach together with its air cargo supply chain partners.
