LOS ANGELES, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Unitrans International Corporation, an industry-leading international logistics provider, announced today that it was awarded the International Standards Organization's (ISO) certification for quality management. 

This standard, officially known as ISO 9001, recognizes Unitrans' quality management practices and dedication to continuous improvement.

"The certification is yet more evidence of our unyielding commitment to continuous quality improvement and our meticulous attention to detail," said Andrew Schadegg, President of Unitrans International Corporation. "Our ISO certification is just one more factor distinguishing us from our competition."

Unitrans received the ISO 9001:2008 certification from PRG after the PRG auditor issued an immensely positive audit report on the company.

"During the audit process itself, the auditor commented on how impressed she was with our company-wide knowledge of the Quality Management System," added Chris Amberg, Executive Vice President.  "Every Unitrans associate she spoke with displayed a deep dedication to continuous improvement."

The ISO 9001 outlines Quality Management System standards that companies must adhere to in order to be eligible for certification.  By meeting or exceeding these standards, companies can ensure that their products and services consistently meet customer requirements and also continually improve quality.

To be certified, companies are audited according to the ISO 9001 standards.  These standards are based on the following principles:

  • Continuous improvement
  • Factual approach to decision making
  • Focus on the client
  • Leadership
  • Staff involvement
  • Process approach
  • System approach to management
  • Mutually beneficial supplier relationships

"I couldn't be more proud of our staff for so consisently embodying these principles and for embracing the Quality Management System," said Andrew Schadegg.
