The International Airport Transport Association (IATA) recently awarded the Mumbai and Hyderabad branches of DACHSER India with the prestigious CEIV Pharma certification, recognizing the company for its excellence in transporting Life Science and Healthcare (LSH) products.
The certification is a significant achievement for the logistics service provider given that only very few companies are currently accredited in India. In fact, the DACHSER Hyderabad branch is only the second logistics firm in the area to receive the recognition; while its Mumbai branch is only among a few in the region.

Possible indefinite strike at Mumbai Nhava Sheva Port
- Update 24/05/2019: Strike call has been postponed after meetings between labour unions and port management. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
Labour Union of Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), also known as Nhava Sheva, has issued a notice warning of an indefinite strike starting May 24 against the new reduced manning structure introduced by the management.
The possible strike is most likely to affect container movement, cause congestions at the port and have a risk of recovery due to the backlog. Additionally, e-way bills generated for import and export cargo from and to the ports might become invalid.
As the discussion between the authorities at JNPT and the union has remained inconclusive, the threat of the strike looms large. A meeting between workers and management will be held on May 23 aiming to resolve the matter.
DACHSER will keep you posted if there is any update. If you have questions about your shipments, feel free to call your DACHSER representative for a discussion.
