With this credo, the Horst Pöppel company shows the way for not only all the staff but also customers and partners. And the logistics company equates quality with customised solutions, great adherence to schedules, absolute reliability and cost-effectiveness.
All logistics and transport processes are fully and comprehensively documented and can be verified at any time. Each employee makes an active contribution towards quality management, and specially trained experts always keep a close eye on all procedures with regard to the established quality standards.
“BOTH THE COMPANY HEADQUARTERS AND THE SUBSIDIARIES ARE CERTIFIED ACCORDING TO DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 – ONE OF THE FIRST FORWARDING COMPANIES IN GERMANY TO ACHIEVE THIS, BY THE WAY.”
Furthermore, with its certification based on the SQAS seal, that applies throughout Europe, the company guarantees the highest quality, safety and environmental standards. IFS Logistics and Council Regulation (EC) No. 834/2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products are also procedures implemented and/or certified in the company in the food logistics division.
When it comes to goods transport, the safety requirements are very high. The staff at Horst Pöppel Logistik und Transport freight carriers know that they bear great responsibility for the goods, for everyone involved in the transport and also for the other road users – and they act accordingly. It goes without saying that all of the company’s vehicles are regularly attended to, serviced and presented for inspection. Even when vehicles are purchased, decisions are made based on state-of-the-art aspects such as emission class, safety equipment, driver comfort and cost-effectiveness.
For the drivers, driving in a careful, defensive manner is their number one priority. They receive regular training in driving safety and have to subject themselves to continuous assessment in this regard. All staff involved also have to take part in regular training on issues such as hazardous materials and load securing. It goes without saying that new statutory regulations are implemented immediately and are strictly observed at the company.
With this credo, the Horst Pöppel company shows not only all the staff but also customers and partners which way to go. And the logistics company equates quality with customised solutions, great adherence to schedules, absolute reliability and cost-effectiveness.
Protecting the environment has been very important to us for many years now. With regular training and information we want to motivate our staff to act consciously and responsibly for the benefit of the environment, and wish to support the process of continuous improvement sustainably. We reduce fuel consumption by using low-noise and low-emission trucks, like EURO 5/EEV engines, for example, and utilising capacities optimally through effective, computer-aided route planning.
