FAST, DEDICATED AND DIRECT
We are 360 Quality, an international shipping association consisting of specialised reefer operators, terminals, stevedores and other specialised service suppliers. We have a keen focus on perishable products like fruit and vegetables.
For us, quality is more than vessels, terminals and pallets:your cargo needs to arrive in the best possible manner. Being specialists for specialists, we firmly believe in the power of collaboration. Together, we cover the entire supply chain so we can maintain the quality of the cargo and our relationship with the people behind it. Specialised reefer transport is our game. Longer shelf life is our aim.
Helping us reach that aim is our 360-degree approach to quality: our job starts at the grower and ends in a store. Our approach is best summarised as FAST, DEDICATED and DIRECT. FAST: we keep transit times short in order to get perishables to the stores faster. DEDICATED: we are dedicated to build and share know-how about cargo, ships, ports, cargo handling, growing cycles, legislation and much more. DIRECT: we keep in direct contact with the cargo in our care, checking product quality regularly.
To realise this, we developed the ‘360 Quality Code’ for handling refrigerated cargoes in specialised reefer vessels.This code lays down technical and management requirements for vessels, terminals and trades. All our members and affiliate members follow the code and are thus 360Q certified. This certification is more-and-more required by those who need their cargo transported in a fast, dedicated and direct way.
