Greencarrier Freight Services’ business has strengthened its position in the energy and project forwarding markets by achieving management (ISO 9001) and environmental (ISO 14001) certification for its Energy & Project Business Unit. “As a new and relatively small company in the oil and gas and project logistics industries, we have to produce a level of quality, personal service and knowledge that exceeds what the competition is doing,” said Georg Skivik Moltu, Director Energy & Projects and Head of HSE & QA, Greencarrier. “International standards such as ISO 9001-2008 and ISO 14001 are strategic tools and guidelines to help companies like Greencarrier tackle some of the most demanding challenges of modern business.
