GLS Group raises ISO certificates to 2015 standards
The GLS Group was one of the first European parcel companies to have its quality and environmental management system audited in line with the new ISO standards, which were revised in autumn 2015.
As part of the external audits, GLS adapted the quality and environmental management systems of operating companies in 18 countries to meet the standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
Quality assurance and sustainable operations are key factors in the service GLS offers. The responsible employees therefore used the update to drive forward the continuous development of our existing systems
The external audits were carried out by the internationally recognised audit firm DEKRA in September 2016. Transition to the revised standards took place in almost all countries at the same time.
Certification with tradition
In many countries, the GLS quality management system has already been ISO-certified for more than twelve years. For its environmental¬ management system, GLS received its first certification in 2011 in the Netherlands. Since 2015, all GLS operating companies have obtained both certificates.
