Van den Bosch achieves SQAS score of 94 percent

Van den Bosch achieves SQAS score of 94 percent

Logistics service provider Van den Bosch achieved an impressive score of 94 percent in the three-yearly SQAS audit. "We are extremely proud of this result, which once again underlines that quality and safety are woven into every part of our organisation”, says Michiel van Kessel, Director Staff Services.

SQAS is a standard developed by CEFIC (European Chemical Industry Council) to ensure that the transport and storage of chemical goods is carried out in a safe, good-assured and environmentally correct manner. The SQAS score is therefore seen by many players in the chemical industry as an important selection criterion for logistics service providers.

Renewed standard
Having achieved a score of 82 percent in 2017, we set ourselves the goal this year to reach over ninety percent. This was a high bar to set, because in 2019 SQAS introduced a new standard which led to a large number of new questions from all aspects.

Impressed
During the audit, which took place at the beginning of October, the auditor was impressed by the business operations and the outcomes achieved. This has resulted in an impressive score of 94 percent. Michiel van Kessel: “It is the ultimate proof that quality and safety run like a red thread through our organisation. I am also impressed by the cooperation between all departments, with this excellent score as the end result.”

Quality and safety assurance
Van Kessel continues: “The chemical sector sets high standards for quality and safety in the transport of chemical products. These requirements have been translated into the SQAS standard. This high score once again underlines that our customers can always trust that their raw materials are transported safely and that the quality is optimal.”

Van den Bosch’s new SQAS Attestation will be posted on the website shortly. For more information view the summary report or visit: www.sqas.org
