In addition, the team has scheduled the transition for its other quality standards, such as ISO 13485 (medical devices) and AS 9120 (aerospace) that will similarly be adopting the new ISO 9001:2015 framework. These initiatives will further strengthen Schenker Singapore’s competitiveness and validate the organisation’s ability to consistently provide customers with products and services of the highest quality, as well as enhance customer satisfaction.
