Quality Management

To guarantee that our quality standards are always as high as possible, we developed an integrated management system that aims at exceeding the requirements for fulfilment of the ISO norms through a focus on compliance with “Safety Certification Contractors (SCC)” and the Seal of Approval for cargo transport and logistics issued by the German Goods Traffic, Logistics and Waste Disposal Association (BGL).

Environmental Focus

The protection of the environment is one central component of our integrated management system. We tackle this important area by focusing on compliance with the provisions of the European Commission's “Eco-Management and Audit Scheme" (EMAS)”. Our specific implementations include life cycle assessments and an extensive catalogue of effective environmental protection measures.
