The essential tool for a conscious choice of the supplier.
The need to use reliable transport and logistics services is an issue of primary importance for any category of customer.
It is therefore essential to have a supplier selection and qualification process that guarantees legal compliance, in order to avoid any risk and damage.
However, the factors to evaluate are many, the collection of information is expensive and does not always guarantee that the risk is correctly identified and verified.
Transport Compliance Rating – TRC is the first international and fair assessment model, specifically dedicated to transport and logistics sector, that assigns an exact numerical value (rating) to an organization according to its compliance with the model identified requirements. These requirements are defined by Clients and manufacturers, in order to make a conscious supplier selection.
The assignment of TRC rating is particularly strict and is made by skilled Auditors and Accredited Certification Bodies.
The process requires a temporary score which later has to be verified and validated in order to have the most objective assessment.
TCR is a transparent model for making a conscious supplier selection
