SQAS assessment for DACHSER in Spain
Following in the footsteps of the locations in Barcelona North and Valencia, the DACHSER Spain branch in San Sebastian has now also been evaluated according to the SQAS safety and quality assessment system. In passing the assessment, DACHSER has fulfilled the strict requirements expected of logistics service providers in the dangerous goods sector with regard to process excellence, quality, sustainability, health, and safety.
DACHSER received SQAS certification for its branch in Barcelona North in 2016, while its Valencia branch successfully passed the audit in 2018. In 2020, the assessment is due for renewal at Barcelona North, and further SQAS assessments are planned on the Iberian peninsula in the medium term. “SQAS reinforces our position as a partner for companies in the chemical industry. With our specific DACHSER Chem-Logistics solution, we offer our customers an increasingly comprehensive network and efficient services based on safety and quality,” says Iñaki Iturrioz, General Manager DACHSER European Logistics Spain.
