Under the halal logistics system, customers can be assured that halal cargo is segregated from non-halal cargo in transport and storage, high hygiene standards apply to both transport and warehousing, and a solid halal assurance system is in place to continuously control the halal business processes.
This certification allows DB Schenker to offer end-to-end halal contract logistics solutions for companies that are halal certified. Halal contract logistics solutions provide better protection for halal cargo and corporate brands along the supply chain.
