QUALITY AND SAFETY
Our quality and safety management system is focused on providing our customers high-quality, standard-compliant services, developing our activities and processes in order to reduce losses, training and raising qualification of our employees, promoting continuous improvement and reducing CO2 emissions.
We achieve this through a certified integrated management system covering quality, physical cargo safety, safety of pharmaceuticals and medical products, food safety, occupational safety and health in the transportation of chemical products and environmental standards.
To ensure that cargo always gets to its final destination safely, on time, and intact, Girteka Logistics constantly invests in the latest equipment and in trainings, and seeks certification for all its processes. These things also create great synergy among our departments.
We follow your shipment from door to door using GPS technology. For high-value cargo, a special security system automatically informs the relevant manager about any unplanned stops or route deviations. That way we can react in real time to resolve any problems that arise.
Girteka Logistics’s fleet and processes meet TAPA TSR level-1 requirements. All refrigerated trailers have additional locks to protect the cargo against breach or theft. Thanks to GPS tracking, we know when and how long a trailer’s door is opened and what the temperature is at all times. That enables us to react fast to any changes.
To ensure that cargo isn’t damaged during transport, we invest in the newest trailers and fasteners which keep cargo stable at all times. In curtainsider trailers special edge protectors and non-slip mats are used. Reefer trailers have special vertical and horizontal supports which keep pallets from sliding during transportation.
Girteka Logistics wishes to adhere to the highest possible standards for every industry where we operate. We have our own internal Quality Management team and as well work with external advisors and service providers to ensure our up to date certifications at all times.
