TrakLok, Inc., a cargo security firm specializing in trailer and container security, announced it has successfully completed its fifth ISO-9001 audit. The internationally recognized quality management standard helps ensure that the company’s integrated lock, alarm and tracking system for trailers and containers is designed and produced so customers receive a consistent, good quality product.
“We knew the ISO process would challenge our management to maintain a complete quality system and drive our company toward continuous quality improvement,” said Tom Mann, president of TrakLok. “The ISO standard helps ensure that our product is safe, reliable and of good quality, and that we are reducing costs by minimizing waste and errors and increasing productivity. The quality of our cargo security system is reflected in the high reliability and efficacy of our product offering.”
Following internal audits as part of ISO 9000 to check how its quality management system is working, TrakLok chose the DQS UL Group as its independent certification body to verify that it is in conformity to the standard. The DQS UL Group is one of the leading certification bodies for management systems worldwide and is well known for diligence in quality system audits and its alliance with Germany’s first certification body for management systems.
The ISO 9000 standard set criteria for a quality management system and addresses various aspects of quality management. The standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards. ISO 9001 is implemented by over one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries.
