Amsterdam, 16th May, 2013 – Menlo Worldwide Logistics (Menlo), the global logistics subsidiary of Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW) has recently completed the certification process for its Rotterdam facility and can now confirm that all four of its operating sites in the Netherlands are certified as ‘Regulated Agent’ Airfreight.
The audit was carried out by the Dutch Government agency, the Royal Marechaussee and means that Menlo’s establishments at Amsterdam, Eersel and Maastricht as well as Rotterdam are registered on the European Union database.
The certificate, which is valid for five years, allows Menlo facilities a waiver from all additional physical security inspections of airfreight shipments as well as any additional contextual inspections of airfreight documentation. These advantages will in turn deliver lower administration costs for customers and avoid potential delays in processing airfreight shipments.
In welcoming the announcement, Tony Gunn, Menlo’s MD in Europe said, “The certification process and audit have been achieved through dedicated teamwork. Specific subject matter expertise and a commitment to excellence have been required in order to meet the operational conditions and security requirements of the legislation. I would like to thank the team and, in particular Jos Giele, our Director of Corporate Security for their hard work in attaining this significant certification. It adds further to the superior level of service that Menlo can offer its customers in Europe.”
