TUCKER CERTIFIED FOR NEW ISO 9001:2015 STANDARD
Part of Tucker’s differentiation in the transportation market has always been our focus on excellence. And whether it’s in our industry, or within our company or service offerings, we feel that nothing worth doing is easy. In late 2007, we put our company through an expensive and rigorous 9-month training program to become certified to the international quality Standard known as ISO 9001, a disciplined quality management system designed to ensure that companies consistently meet and exceed the needs of customers and other stakeholders. To stay certified, firms must undergo annual on-site audits by independent third party firms. Tucker has been ISO 9001 certified continuously since 2008.
This past June, the annual audit was particularly challenging because we were being audited against the newest ISO Standard issued in 2015. Though the deadline for compliance to the new 2015 Standard is September 2018, we are so very pleased to report that we’re now ISO 9001:2015 compliant – and over a year ahead of time!
“As a risk management focused company, I particularly appreciated ISO 9001:2015 for its higher emphasis on performance monitoring, and the introduction of a more disciplined approach to engage in risk-based thinking in everything we do. As an intermediary that serves the needs of so many parties in every single movement, the 2015 Standard really complements and enhances the way we operate the business,” said Jim Tucker, president and COO.
Tucker is proud of our team for putting in the extra hours, and the hard work it took to learn a new Standard and earn this prestigious certification.
