Luís Simões, reference logistics operator in the Iberian Peninsula, has chosen multinational Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance as the new entity responsible for auditing and certifying all the management systems of its companies. This change corresponds to Luís Simões strategy of ensuring the highest level of excellence in the quality and efficiency of its processes. Luís Simões received the first quality certification in 1995.

The choice of Lloyd's Register was motivated by the extensive experience of the English entity in some of the main sectors in which Luís Simões is active and in its strong presence in Portugal and Spain, which will facilitate greater fluidity in communications and a better understanding of the context of each business and Luís Simões' delegation. In fact, according to the new defined audit work plan, the Lloyd's Register team develops a continuous process throughout the year, conducting audits in the different operations centers of Luís Simões to ensure compliance with the defined standards.

Currently, Luís Simões is committed to the implementation of international standards in all its strategic facilities: ISO 9001 (related to Quality Management, whose objective is to guarantee the satisfaction and fulfillment of the requirements of its customers) and ISO 14001 (aimed at a management, with the objective of reducing environmental impacts and activities derived from its activity).

In addition, and always in accordance with the needs of its customers, Luís Simões will continue to implement and certify other key references such as the BRC and IFS Logistics standards (which recognize their commitment to food safety), OHSAS 18001 (which establishes the requirements for the occupational safety and health system), or the SMETA audit (related to ethics and corporate social responsibility).

"Achieving excellence in quality of service is the main objective of Luís Simões," says Pedro Ventura, Luís Simões Process and Compliance Director. "To this end, it is important to have the support of certification bodies with experience in the sectors in which we are present and to help us reflect on our commitment to customers and our employees."

This change of the certifying entity will also imply the change in the image of all Luís Simões fleet, installations and institutional publications.
