John Raymond Transport’s Cannock site – part of the Nolan Group – has been successful in adding the challenging BRC Global standard for Storage and Distribution to its industry standard achievements. Preparation for the evaluation saw them working closely with Labyrinth Logistics Consulting.
John Raymond Transport’s Geraint Davies said: “It’s great to have achieved this certification - we pride ourselves on our high standards at John Raymond Transport and it’s so important to have an industry-recognised standard that gives customers the assurance they need about our world class best practices.
Labyrinth’s work with us in preparing for the inspection made the whole process run smoothly and gave us complete confidence that we hadn’t overlooked anything that could trip us up - it was vital to our preparation”.
The project was a first time experience in this area of industry standard certification for both companies. This is a particularly exacting standard covering aspects of ISO 9001:2015, Health & Safety and Food Hygiene and is often requested by retailers and food manufacturers - and as a result can be useful as a route to win blue chip business.
Labyrinth Logistics Ruth Waring said: “This certification is pretty challenging but well worth it for logistics businesses that want to attract blue chip businesses. John Raymond Transport continues to set itself apart from the pack with its drive to demonstrate its high standards - we expect that other companies will be keen to catch up.”
