Safety and Quality

A reliable framework

Global logistics providers are situated in a network of complex relationships. The increasing speed of changes on the market, in the society and in technology is creating manifold challenges. A future-orientated company therefore needs a comprehensive regulatory framework that takes into account this network of challenges and that at the same time leaves the necessary leeway for acting in a flexible way.

Leschaco tackles these tasks successfully in accordance with the needs of the customers, of the employees, of the partners, and of the public. We have therefore set up an Integrated Management System (IMS). It serves as a reliable orientation for the group and for our customers.

Leschaco has set itself the goal of providing an excellent performance in the fields of health and occupational safety, transportation safety, environment protection, as well as ethics and quality. The experts here talk in short of HSEQ – which stands for Health, Safety, Environment, Quality. Our IMS takes into account all these aspects on an equal footing and integrates the respective concerns into all management and decision-making processes. The advantage: Instead of several management systems working apart from one another, the IMS provides our customers and us with a clearly structured safeguarding of the desired standards in one system. 

Our Sustainability Management has been awarded with a "Silver Certification" by EcoVadis, an independent agency for assessing the CSR performance of companies. This result places Leschaco among the top 30 % performers evaluated by EcoVadis world-wide.

Besides the integrated quality and environment management systems ISO 9001 and 14001 the areas of safety, health, and ethics become more and more important. Today they are an inseparable part of our business activities and they are the basis for fulfilling demanding services worldwide.

Both a success factor and a matter of the heart

Logistics is a ”People’s Business” – our service is based on the commitment of our employees. With our business we are moving right in the heart of the society. Therefore Leschaco is committed to its social responsibility of acting ethically proper. Our Corporate Responsibility (CR) has many faces. Internally it shows itself e.g. in health care and in comprehensive occupational safety for all of our employees worldwide.

Complying with all labour protection law requirements concerning the protection of the health of the employees and the public is as self-evident for us as is our demand to all of our partners to also comply with these requirements.

But the scope of corporate responsibility can be even broader:
In our view, corporate acting always also has to be measured by the principles of ethics and morals.

Safety awareness and the right solutions

Safety in the supply chain is of a specific importance for Leschaco. To manage it professionally is one of our most important obligations against our customers, employees, partners, and authorities. Moreover a demonstrably high safety standard often also speeds up the handling of a transport – an additional benefit we very gladly provide to our customers.

The acknowledged high safety standards of the Leschaco Group is guaranteed and being further developed by two sets of action. On the one hand we have good contacts to the relevant authorities and we actively cooperate with national and international associations. On the other hand we possess approvals and certificates that guarantee the flawless and border-crossing transport of the goods entrusted to us. These are, among others:

Authorized Economic Operator (AEO)
The World Customs Organisation’s certificate called Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) documents that the AEO is particularly reliable and trustworthy. This accelerates the customs processes and provides safety simplifications.

Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism Certificate (C-TPAT)
This certificate of the US customs authorities certifies the safety of the international supply chain or the compliance with the specific US-requirements respectively.

Compliance
The implemented processes guarantee the compliance with the worldwide regulations for hazardous goods, e.g. the IMDG Code, 49CFR, TDG, IATA, ICAO, ADR, RID. We guarantee the compliance with the anti-terror regulation by means of a continuous check of national and international sanctions lists and embargo regulations.

Keeping a close watch on environment protection

The protection of the environment and of the climate and the economical use of natural resources are among the most important tasks of our time. If also coming generations are supposed to grow up in a liveable environment, we all have to participate actively in the design of eco-friendly economic processes.

The Leschaco Group is aware of this responsibility. We recognize that we as a logistics company necessarily also consume natural resources – e.g. by using energy, by emissions, or by soil sealing. It is our aim to keep this environmental burden as small as possible. By a continuous improvement of those of our processes that are relevant to the environment we want to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of people all over the world, now and in the future.

We are committed to actively protect the natural resources. But this is also about the fact that only those companies will be accepted by society in the long term that act in a responsible manner. Leschaco’s management and employees therefore jointly made the decision that the applying standards of environment protection shall be respected for all business activities. It is our aim to design all business activities in such a way that aspects with relevance to the environment will be considered for all planning and that they will be integrated into the defined processes.

Always on the path to maximum quality

For Leschaco service and quality have been the most important guidelines for 130 years. Both are inseparably connected with our top target: Fulfilling the requirements of our customers – at any time and worldwide. We are proud of what we have achieved – and at the same time we are determined to confirm and further improve our acknowledged high quality level also in the future.

All of our global logistics activities are following the internationally recognized norms DIN/EN/ISO 9001 and 14001. The compliance with these norms is guaranteed by internal and external audits that are carried out in regular intervals in all companies of the Group worldwide.

An important quality factor consists in efficient, transparent, and globally standardized processes. An important basis to fulfil this demand is the systematic further education and the training for our employees.

The quality-mindedness is deeply rooted in the thinking of our employees and in the organizational structure of the company. The quality and environmental manager of the Leschaco Group directly reports to the company management. He has the task of enforcing the compliance with the requirements of the norms.

The Group’s executives are obliged to convey to their employees the quality targets and to actively support them in fulfilling these requirements.

Sensitive goods in safe hands

Hazardous materials transports are subject to numerous national and international laws and regulations. And this is just right and proper. But these many regulations are often hard to comprehend for laymen. Leschaco has the necessary expertise and experience because the handling of hazardous goods has been one of our core competences for a long time.

The worldwide Competence Centres with their hazardous goods specialists on the ground guarantee that by using our own software there will be a complete control of all hazardous goods processes.  These specialists are also responsible for the communication with local authorities, with the partners of the supply chain and with the Leschaco network.

We gladly share this knowledge with our customers. They benefit from safe, reliable transports and maximum transparency and they thus get an overview over a special and important segment of transportation.

Our services include the training and consulting in all matters concerning hazardous goods and waste, e.g. classification, packaging, labelling, or documentation.

Compliance

As a family-run company, Leschaco looks back on a long history. Responsibility has always been at the centre of our entrepreneurial activities. In this way, we want to pass on some of our success and actively shape the future of our society.

Our goal is formulated in simple terms: We want to go the right way, for the benefit of our employees, our customers and business partners, and beyond the boundaries of our business activities. We pursue this goal in a spirit of partnership, openness and honesty.

This way of thinking determines our principles, values and policies.Since 1879.

Certified competence and quality

The quality assurance within the Integrated Management System (IMS) of the Leschaco Group and the external benchmarking help us to know that we are doing a good job. To also provide our customers all over the world with this certainty, we are ready to be constantly examined by neutral parties.

With our national and international certifications and assessments Leschaco’s customers and partners can be sure that they can rely on our service.

In the field of hazardous goods alone we document this safety and reliability by numerous certificates, e.g. SQAS Transport Service (Safety and Quality Assessment System) and the certificates CDI-MPC Freight Forwarding, CDI-MPC Container Freight Station and CDI-MPC Tank Container Operating of the Chemical Distribution Institute.

History

Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.

When Lexzau, Scharbau was founded in 1879 by Wilhelm Lexzau and Julius Scharbau in Hamburg, followed by the opening of an office in Bremen in 1898, the foundation was laid for the company's 137 years of history.

With the entry of Mr. Herbert Conrad into Lexzau, Scharbau as shareholder in 1959, the connections with Bremen become closer and closer, and are sealed when he becomes sole shareholder in 1970.

The opening of an office in USA in 1978 marks the start of a continual and successful internationalization. Since 1992 Jörg Conrad has been the owner of the Leschaco Group, of which the mother company, Lexzau, Scharbau GmbH & Co. KG, still has its headquarters in Bremen today.

The group of companies has been presented under the umbrella of Leschaco since June 24, 2011.
