ISO 9001 Quality Management System
In 1993, Schenker, Inc. became the first full-service logistics company in the U.S. to achieve ISO certification. Additionally, the scope of our certification is the most comprehensive in the industry today, ensuring consistent quality standards, in "International Air and Sea Freight Forwarding and Consolidation services, Customs Clearance, International Projects and Logistics Services."
One of the many benefits of the ISO Quality Management System is that it is based upon the process of continuous improvement, sub-contractor evaluation and consistent, empirically proven procedures. As such, the program is based upon a form of "structured flexibility" which constantly evaluates both practices and suppliers. Ultimately the driving force behind our quality program is to provide exceptional service to you.
