Multi temperature supply chain specialist in storage and logistics, Midlands based Oakland International, has once again passed the British Retailers Consortium (BRC) quality audit for storage and distribution with flying colours.
Oakland’s Operations Director, Paul Ziolek, commented: “Retention of such a prestigious, global standard provides positive recognition for our customers that they are dealing with a supply chain partner ranked amongst the very best. We were one of the first in our sector to achieve this standard and have maintained our accreditation for over 8 years.”
Oakland International’s consistency and care in their supply chain operation, which also includes order picking, packing and food tempering, is a key factor in the firm’s popularity as the operator of choice.

Speaking on behalf of Oakland’s growing Quality Assurance team, Quality Assurance Manager Louise Smith said: “We are all absolutely delighted to not only pass the audit, but to come through it once again in such a positive way.
“The Oakland team’s personal dedication continues to ensure attention to detail and flexibility of service offer, delivering confident results time and time again to ensure we maintain customer confidence as well as BRC accreditation.”
