Global Shipping & Logistics (GSL), the Dubai-based logistics service provider, is enjoying a fruitful start to the year after the company qualified for four ISO standards, considerably more than the number required by national regulations.
The standards won by GSL include the quality management system (QMS), the environmental management system (EMS), the occupational health and safety management system (OHSAS) and the hazard analysis and critical control point certificate.
“We wanted to go for the more advanced standards as well, and from what we understand, hardly any of the other regional 3PLs have all four of these standards, so I really rate this as one of our great recent achievements,” said Arun Kumar, IT manager for GSL, who was speaking to arabiansupplychain.com.
In addition, GSL has also completed the construction of two further distribution centres, to add to its two current facilities in Dubai Investment Park. Altogether, the firm will have two temperature-controlled and two cold storage units, and the recent move now more than doubles GSL’s existing capacity.
“Everything has been built and we should be commissioning the two centres in April,” concluded Kumar.
