SHEQ-Management

Safety/Security - Health - Environment - Quality

"Our aim is to be one step ahead of our competitors as far as meeting our customer's expectations from a service point of view"

Motto of our company founder
The integrated management system combines the processes, methods and tools that are required to perform various safety, health, environment and quality-related tasks in one coherent structure.

In the SHEQ management team there are employees from transport partner management who work directly on these cross-departmental topics.
