German logistics group DB Schenker has upgraded its Moroccan branches in an effort to improve the quality of its service to Africa.
DB Schenker says it has upgraded its branches in Tanger and Casablanca and ‘’thus extended the high quality standards of its European land transport network to the African continent.’’
National company Schenker Maroc SA provides daily connections with the European DB Schenker terminals, based on direct lines with Spain, France, Germany and Italy.
“As the gate of Africa, Morocco offers a very strong strategic position for the African transportation market,” said Karl Nutzinger, Member of the Board of Management of Schenker AG, responsible for Land Transport.
“The high quality standard of our arm in Morocco enables us to offer customers services under well-known high quality and security level,” added Nutzinger.
DB Schenker says its Morocco operations are meeting the very high quality standards of the DB Schenker land transport network, going beyond the ISO standard.
They say this has been confirmed by successfully passing a product audit which has been conducted by a neutral certification body.
DB Schenker in Morocco has also been awarded the security focused TAPA FSR A-level certification for its facility in Casablanca, after an intensive implementation process. The DB Schenker platform in Casablanca is now an ideal base for logistics solutions for high-value products in northern Africa.
With the two certifications in the field of Security and Quality DB Schenker in Morocco has completed the range of services for customers with fully integrated and standardised processes and a warehouse that meets most demanding security requirements. The terminal has a bonded warehouse of 4,800 square meters for cross-dock activities and value added logistics services.
