Panalpina's global security policy is certified to ISO 28000:2007, an international standard for supply chain security management.
This standard covers the "Provision of global security: Corporate level management system". Panalpina went through an extensive external audit by SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, and demonstrated that its security systems and processes are fully documented and aligned in the Internal Management System (IMS).
ISO 28000 is the internationally recognized standard for security management systems for the supply chain. It provides a tried and tested framework and systematic approach to better coordinate cross-functional risk management mechanisms, improve performance measurement, ensure continual improvement and reduce misalignment of risk management objectives between silos.
