Quality Health Safety and Environment Standards
TGI are responsible for the movement of extensive project cargo, which often weighs a lot, is extremely expensive and is often costly and difficult to replace. We regularly partner with billion dollar global corporations and government departments that need their equipment delivered to schedule. Overruns would cost hundreds of thousands in lost production, project overrun or opportunity costs. Managing these projects with a high attention to quality, health, safety and environmental standards is at the core of our business.
TGI is highly vigilant to ensure that we meet all the QHSE standards that are expected in international logistics and always seek project and process improvement. We have met and passed ISO 9001 Quality Management accreditation and the AS 4801 Health and Safety standard.

Managing significant joint venture relationships and the growth in TGI’s offices are also key business areas that must be effectively managed.
