WINNIPEG, Man. — Reimer Express and its parent company Roadway Express of Ohio have earned system-wide ISO 9001:2000 certification.
The certification covers the system-wide management and operation of the transport of customer goods from origin pick-up to destination delivery for both companies.
Reimer Express completed its certificate renewal audit in March. Administered by Lloyd’s register Quality Assurance (LRQA), the ISO 9001:2000 standard is a user-friendlier version of the ISO 9002:1994 standard, which was focussed on manufacturing not services.
In contrast, the process-oriented ISO 9001 standard can be tailored to a variety of businesses integrated with other standards and emphasizes continual improvement. The Quality Management System (QMS) requires a commitment from top management to develop customer-focussed organizations that involve people at all levels.
In March 200, Reimer Express and Roadway Express became the first nationwide carrier to earn the ISO 9002 certification.
Reimer Express Lines Ltd. is a transporter of industrial, commercial and retail goods.
