For many years Rhenus Logistics has provided a specialist service for the international shipment of liquid chemicals, oxidising agents, flammable and compressed gases, poisons, powders and granules, both packed and in bulk – in fact, the majority of hazardous cargo classifications. In addition our dangerous goods qualified staff ensure that we are up to date in all aspects of handling dangerous goods, and as a company we monitor our operations to ensure they conform to the latest environmental guidelines. Our four main hubs in Manchester, Bradford, Cannock and Basildon have successfully obtained SQAS certification to ensure correct, secure and safe handling of hazardous products.
Training and standards play an important role in our business and our employees at all branches are continually appraised with on-going training as required, particularly hazardous goods and security training. In this respect our four main hubs have successfully been SQAS (Security & Quality Assessment Systems) assessed for the correct, secure and safe handling, storage and despatch of chemicals whether hazardous or not. Similarly we were one of the first forwarders to obtain ISO 9001 accreditation in October 1992 which has been continuous ever since and now applies to all 10 branches as does ISO 14001 which we gained in 2010.
Furthermore Rhenus UK obtained AEO (F) certification on 8th December 2011 (Authorized Economic Operator) status for safety, security and customs compliance. AEO is an EU customs regime granted to trusted businesses aimed at increasing the security of the international supply chain, while facilitating trade. This is an important step in underlining the Rhenus commitment to quality and high levels of customer service.
