Management system of the BERTSCHI Group

Basis for the BERTSCHI management system, which is implemented throughout the whole Group, are the certifications according to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, ISO 22000:2005, GMP+ B4.1, as well as individual SQAS (+CDI) Assessments in the Transport Service, Tank Cleaning and Warehouse area (for further information on this see below).


In addition, the drivers are educated and trained in the following topics (abstract):

  • Detailed basic training (centrally)
  • Yearly drivers trainings
  • BBS (incl. Defensive Driving, Eco-Drive, Roll Stability Support)
  • ISOPA
  • Special products

The BERTSCHI Group is centrally organised and, thus, harbours an optimized Customer-Service-Center, which enables very direct and efficient actions, resulting in a significant competitive edge.


Various positive evaluations both by customers and by external auditors confirmed the above.
