Germanischer Lloyd certifies first Company in Spain with CCQI Certificate

Integra2 is the first company in Spain receiving a CCQI and management audit with the focus on "transport and logistic operations of goods". Jose Manuel García Martín, Managing Director Germanischer Lloyd Certification Services, S.L., handed over the two new certificates to Pablo Rebollo, Managing Director Integra2.

With the Cool Chain Quality Indicators (CCQI) industry standard, Integra2 provides its customers a certified and quantified degree of proficiency in the growing perishable and temperature-sensitive products (PTSP) logistics market.

The Cool Chain Quality Indicators (CCQI) - established by the Cool Chain Association (CCA) and Germanischer Lloyd (GL) - is an industry standard for reliability, quality and skills in temperature-critical logistics like food, flowers and plants, some chemicals, pharmaceuticals and human blood. CCQI uses a benchmarking system to assess transparent and comparable quality measures. The standard provides guidance and support to continually improve and assess the logistics chain for PTSP carriers (airlines, road haulers), handling agents, forwarders, perishable centers, airports, warehouses (long- and short-term cold stores) and containerized and conventional Ocean Transport.
