The Grup TCB subsidiary TCBuen container terminal in the Port of Buenaventura, Colombia has been awarded ISO 28000 certification for security in the supply chain of its port services, consisting primarily of handling and transporting containers.
ISO 28000 ensures the safe delivery of goods in compliance with current legislation and establishing mechanisms to respond quickly to emergency situations, to combat theft and to prevent damage to goods.
TCBuen has also completed its Integrated Management System (IMS) while updating the remaining ISO specifications concerning quality, safety and respect for the environment.
“Becoming ISO 28000 certified has let us evaluate our security measures and our compliance with the requirements for ensuring a safe environment in the loading and unloading of container ships. This quality and safety guarantee is an added value we can offer our customers”, said Miguel Ruiz, TCBuen’s general manager.
TCBuen is currently completing work on a second phase of development which will double its operating capacity up to 610,000 teu per year by improving efficiency in the Buenaventura terminal.
