TOO MEK Transsystema chooses quality with BSI


10 March 2004

Today, TOO MEK Transsystema, a leading international freight forwarding company in the Republic of Kazakhstan, achieved registration to the international quality management system ISO 9001:2000. TOO MEK Transsystema is among the first companies to obtain an ISO registration from the BSI Group (British Standards Institution) in Kazakhstan.

TOO MEK Transsystema manages and delivers an international rail, road, air and shipping transportation service. Their services include cargo handling in ports, transportation of containers, customs clearance, vessel chartering, loading and unloading operations and door-to-door service delivery via a network of regional partners and agents.

Operating principally in the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), TOO MEK Transsystema’s operations also cover the whole of continental Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

The prestigious award of the ISO 9001:2000 registration from BSI demonstrates Transsystema’s commitment to continually improving the way it manages customer and supplier relationships. The work behind this will also help drive Transsystema ahead of competition in terms of effective customer services.

BSI Group pioneered the development of the management systems standards that enable organizations to greatly improve the efficiency of the way they do business. Today, BSI is the world’s foremost registrar of management systems with over 40,000 clients worldwide.

Headquartered in London, England, the Group has regional hub offices in the United States and Hong Kong, which support a global network of facilities in over 110 countries, including an office in Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city.

Commenting on Transsystema’s success, Darren Gill, Manager, International Business, said, "BSI is delighted to have one of Kazakhstan’s leading organizations as a client and we have been very impressed with their commitment to achieving excellence in their operations.

"BSI is committed to offering the best possible support to companies in Kazakhstan, so that they can get the most from their Management Systems registration. The work we’ve done with Transsystema is a great demonstration of our partnership approach putting this philosophy into action."
