GAC Bahrain has secured the coveted FAIMplus certification for its international moving operations, after completing what is considered the most strenuous quality assessment in the industry.

FAIM is an industry-leading standard for the logistics business, developed by FIDI Global Alliance.

By assessing the international moving activities of logistics companies, the FIDI-FAIM accreditation provides a globally recognised common standard for service delivery. The 3.0 version of FAIMplus is the strictest yet - treating quality as a living platform that requires constant self-assessment.

Verifiers Ernst & Young awarded the certification after a series of evaluations that were part of a three-year audit cycle that covered the fulfilment of prerequisites, a pre-audit assessment and an onsite audit.

"Successfully qualifying for the FAIMplus accreditation after an extremely stringent audit underlines our commitment to quality and efficiency across all our areas of service," said Mikael Leijonberg, Managing Director, GAC Bahrain.
