Better delivery quality, shorter delivery times
Basis for this certification from June 2014 was the security declaration of the known consignor. Hess pledges to comply with set security measures for air-freight shipments during processing, storage and transport of goods. This ensures supply chain security all the way from Hess to the airline without additional time-consuming checks. Additionally, annual internal validations ensure the maintenance of a secure supply chain within the company.
Strict standards for the international movement of goods
After the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001, the conditions for the international movement of goods were tightened significantly. Globally new standards for the exchange of goods were implemented. Newly developed certification systems such as the „Known Consignor” are to ensure maximum security for the international transport of goods. As „Known Consignor” Hess fulfils the comprehensive requirements for the air-freight certification at the headquarters of the company in Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany.
