TCS awarded ISO 18001 Certificate
DP World's Tilbury Container Services (TCS) has been awarded ISO 18001 certification in recognition of the high standards it has set in establishing its operational Health and Safety management system.
TCS is the only dedicated, modern direct access deep-sea terminal within the Port of London. Located on the River Thames, adjacent to the M25 motorway, and less than 48 kilometres from central London, the terminal is one of the major gateways for animal products and a wide range of foodstuffs.
TCS has successfully completed the two stages of assessment where its safety management standards were scrutinised for efficiency in eliminating or minimising health risks to employees and other interested parties.
Flemming Dalgaard, Regional Director, DP World - Europe and Russia, said "The ISO 18001 certificate is particularly significant as it focuses on one of the vital areas of port operation. TCS has set up an effective system of safety management that covers all areas of health risk to our employees as well as those who use the premises. As part of the DP World global network, TCS is comitted to follow the policy of service excellence and maintain our competitive edge".
With the ISO 18001 certificate, the DP World- run terminal has completed the entire package of ISO certification awards. TCS has already been awarded the ISO 9001, 14001, 28000 certificates for management and operational excellence and is a certified Authorised Economic Operator (AEO).
