ISO9001 for Davies Turner Ireland

[ January 4, 2021   //   ]

Davies Turner Ireland has added ISO9001 accreditation to help reduce the risk of disruption following the end of the UK’s Brexit transition period. It also brings Davies Turner Ireland into line with DT Group’s UK operations, all of which are also ISO9001: 2015 accredited. 
Airfreight and customs manager in Dublin, Joe Mercer comments: “ISO9001 accreditation is for all our services – air, sea, road, logistics and customs clearance and our collection and delivery partner, Independent Express is also accredited, so we have the whole supply chain covered.”
Mercer predicts that the Covid-19 crisis could increase the importance of ISO9001 certification in future. “If people are less able to have face-to-face meetings, they are more likely to ask for formal quality certifications to ensure that the companies they are selecting are operating to the standards they require.”
Davies Turner Group chairman, Philip Stephenson adds: “Over the last few years, we have also seen our clients seeking greater evidence that Davies Turner is fully engaged with environmental, social and governance issues or objectives. 
“Some are making accreditation to international standards such as ISO 9001; ISO14001 and AEO a requirement for suppliers with which they work.
“Customers want to be assured that they are entrusting their shipments to forwarders who can deliver secure and resilient supply chain management. Accreditations such as ISO 9001 and AEO are evidence of that. These certificates clearly demonstrate our commitment to all of the company’s stakeholders.”
