RLS Logistics Achieves "Superior Rating" in 2010 AIB Audit

RLS Logistics, a leading temperature-controlled logistics provider, recently received their highest independent inspection marks ever and a "SUPERIOR" rating from the American Institute of Baking. This is the fourth time in the past five years that RLS has achieved the SUPERIOR rating. The AIBI GMP third party audits provide an opportunity for companies to grade their own quality improvement and self-inspection procedures. Facilities involved with the manufacturing and distribution of foods strive to meet requirements in five categories designed to keep food products in a facility wholesome and safe. The categories include: Operational Methods and Personnel Practices, Maintenance for Food Safety, Cleaning Practices, Integrated Pest Management and Adequacy of Prerequisite and Food Safety Programs.

"This is a great achievement for us," says Jim Green, Director of Operations, for RLS Logistics. "The 'superior' performance rating from the independent AIBI audit validates the quality improvement programs we implemented a number of years ago," he continued. "We are committed to being the #1 logistics supplier, by that I mean, we are not interested in being the biggest, but the best. Earning that position means evaluating every aspect of your operations and then implementing changes that will continue to improve the operations and services. The AIBI audit was a rigorous test of our operations and represented a new set of eyes on our procedures," he concluded.

RLS Logistics is one of the region's leading temperature-controlled logistics providers offering superior transportation, warehousing, packaging, and distribution services. Customers include refrigerated and frozen food processors, importers and marketers, food service distributors, supermarket chains and shopping clubs.
