Dachser renews SQAS accreditation at its San Sebastián branch
The San Sebastián branch of the multinational logistics and freight transport company Dachser has renewed its SQAS accreditation after verifying that it meets demanding requirements in terms of quality, safety, occupational risk prevention, environment and Corporate Social Responsibility. On this occasion, the result obtained in the questionnaire was 84%, maintaining the percentage achieved in 2019.
Continuing with the challenge of achieving a leadership position as a provider of logistics services for the chemical sector, last November Dachser renewed the SQAS (Safety & Quality Assessment for Sustainability) accreditation for transport services in the San Sebastián delegation ( Zubieta).
This renewal comes after the validity of the first accreditation, granted in 2019 after passing a rigorous audit, has ended. Three years later, the Zubieta delegation has once again undergone another rigorous external examination, based on the criteria of safety, occupational risk prevention, environmental care and Corporate Social Responsibility, in order to verify that the same levels continue to be maintained. of excellence.
This recent accreditation has included some modifications to the SQAS questionnaire to adapt to market changes. Among the main variations is the update of the questions regarding the measurement and management of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from logistics providers in the Transportation Service questionnaires. Likewise, new questions have been implemented regarding the digitalization of information and new requirements have been incorporated to avoid the loss of plastic pellets with the implementation of the OCS program.
After the relevant exams, the Dachser San Sebastián delegation has obtained 84% in this new version of the SQAS 2022 evaluation questionnaire, maintaining the percentage achieved in 2019.
SQAS accreditation, synonymous with transparency
The SQAS accreditation, implemented by the CEFIC (European Chemical Industry Council), was born with the aim of achieving a conscious and safe chemical products transport chain. This recognition is obtained after carrying out a series of evaluations that aim to determine performance in transportation. These inspections are always carried out by accredited entities, which favors the credibility of the results and enhances collaboration between different companies.
In addition to San Sebastián, Dachser has two other delegations in Spain accredited with the SQAS certification: Barcelona North and Valencia, both of great relevance in the trafficking of products from the chemical sector. At European level, the logistics and transport operator has a total of 223 European Logistics delegations, of which 29 have already been accredited according to SQAS.
