Supply Chain SecurityIn response to the increased threat of terrorism throughout the world, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics including its subsidiary, affiliated, and operating group of companies, has implemented protective security measures to create a secure environment for our people to work in, to safeguard our customers' cargo, and to protect our owners' investments.
With the strong leadership and direction from our owners, along with broad communication, information sharing and extensive involvement by all levels of management, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has implemented a holistic layered security structure for its integrated global business network. A common security policy and a supporting security guideline have been developed to establish coherent and efficient security practices to be applied across all operating companies within Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics. This policy and guideline is supported by each region and business unit and is based on the core values of the Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics to build a "security culture" by the direct involvement of all line managers and contributors, on a day to day basis.
Our fleet and terminal facilities are ISPS (International Ship and Port Security Code) certified.
