The 360 Quality Association is an alliance of specialised reefer shipping lines and seaport terminals specialised in the handling of reefer cargoes. The aim of the Association is not only to maintain the high standards established in the chain, but also to continuously improve the quality of handling, storage and transport of reefer cargoes.
In order to realise their objectives, the Association requires the specialised reefer vessels and terminals to be audited and certified according to the Association’s own guidelines.
BMT Surveys has been instrumental in the development of the survey form and guidelines and is fully authorised under the Association’s rules to perform audits on specialised reefer ships and coldstore terminals. Since the start of the survey programme in 2007, BMT has performed over 400 audits.
