At REICHHART, we consistently pursue quality in everything we do. Our mission is to provide first-class logistical services.
We meet this challenge by adapting our quality criteria to the requirements of our customers as well as by internally promoting continuous quality improvement. Transparent structures and comprehensible processes show efficiency potentials and create cost-effectiveness. At the same time, this allows us to minimize risks and ensure smooth process flows.
REICHHART is certified according to ISO 9001. On request, we also implement the requirements of the automotive industry according to VDA 6.2, ISO/TS 16949. We expect our suppliers and service partners to comply with these too, thus ensuring quality along the entire value-added chain. To do so, we rely on regular discussions on the basis of a standardized supplier evaluation system.
- Regular risk and disruption analyses
- Customized KPIs for a continuous process control
- Internal audits
- Meaningful standardisation of logistical processes
- Continuous traceability
- Complete documentation
REICHHART sees itself as a learning organization that develops, maintains, shares and applies knowledge in a process-oriented manner. From experience, we see knowledge management as a common task that extends beyond the company boundaries. With our knowledge management, we are pursuing the vision:
By combining people's knowledge, we learn together and develop more intelligent results.
By networking knowledge, we increase our efficiency and added value. By questioning existing knowledge, we develop unique and future-oriented solutions for our clients.
For us as a family business, sustainability means taking responsibility. That is why we are committed to holistic, sustainable development in three areas: society, ecology and economy.
Sustainable and environmentally-friendly business models play a central role in the professionalisation and continuous development of our logistics services, along the entire supply chain.
Within the high-emissions logistics sector, we take responsibility for ensuring that our transport concepts are developed in a manner that is respectful of ecological and economic factors. Our transport planning and control, as well as the REICHHART fleet, are parameters that contribute to the efficient and sustainable implementation of green logistics.
Our employees are the basis of our success. Therefore, a value-oriented approach and respectful coexistence are our top priority. We challenge and nurture our employees, highlight interesting prospects and offer flexible framework conditions. What's more, we are committed to protecting the environment and making a positive social impact.
