RCS Logistics, a division of Rhenus Logistics, is celebrating achieving British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard ‘AA’ status for its Northamptonshire based warehouse facilities.
The accreditation marks the success of RCS’s new warehouse in Corby, which opened in November 2017. In just four months, the team has achieved the highest BRC audit rating possible, demonstrating the stringent quality standards of the warehouse and operations. It also marks a re-accreditation for RCS’s existing warehouse facilities, with an increase in the rating awarded from ‘A’ to ‘AA’.
RCS was acquired by the Rhenus Group in September 2017. Following the acquisition Rhenus, invested in a further 90,000 sq ft of warehouse space, increasing operations by 30%.
Richard Robinson, director at RCS Logistics, commented: “Achieving ‘AA’ BRC Global Standard status for both our new and existing warehouse spaces is a real testament to the work the team undertakes to constantly improve our operations. BRC status is an essential indicator of the standards of an operation and something we take very seriously to deliver the best possible service for our customers and their end customers. To have achieved the highest possible audit rating during a period of acquisition and business growth is something I am very proud of.”
BRC Global Standards guarantees standardisation in terms of quality, safety and operational criteria. To achieve accreditation, BRC audits a company to a set of stringent guidelines which are valued and often required by retailers, manufacturers and food service organisations.
