MR. JOST HELLMANN PRESIDENT HELLMANN WORLDWIDE LOGISTICS
"I commend the Global Institute of Logistics for its work in promoting collaboration as the key to delivering global logistics solutions. We have moved from an Industrial Age enterprise to a 21st century business. This period of transition from one economic order to another sees the ending of an era when businesses were inwardly focused concentrating on a buyer seller model to a truly outwardly focused model concentrating on collaboration as the key means to add value and impact the bottom line. Collaboration is destined to be a primary proficiency for the next millennium and I welcome the Institute's work in establishing this new order.”
MR. HEINRICH GOLLER MANAGING DIRECTOR HAMBURGER HAFEN & LOGISTIK
"Certification according to the Global Institute of Logistics CTQI standard shows that Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) procedures, management organisation, and performance all meet the requirements. At the same time, the certification stimulates our team to further improve the performance for and with our customers. Thanks to the exchange of knowledge and experience with other international terminal operators during the Institutes benchmarking process, new impulses for our own development also arose. The additional operating effort is manageable since reliable and fast operating and information processes are of great importance to CTA anyway.”
MR. JERRY BRIDGES PRESIDENT VIRGINIA PORT AUTHORITY
