RLS achieves highest BRCGS certifications

Seven RLS Logistics cold storage facilities garner AA rankings from the British Retail Consortium Global Standard in 2022.

Cold chain solutions provider RLS Logistics recently secured the highest ranking for every facility up for British Retail Consortium Global Standard (BRCGS) certification in 2022.

The company said its ecommerce fulfillment center in Salt Lake City; three cold storage warehouses in New Jersey and one in Pittston, Pennsylvania; RLS Gress in Scranton, Pennsylvania; and RLS Premier in Burleson, Texas, all received the AA status from BRCGS.

“The AA rankings couldn’t be possible without the great leadership at the site and engagement of our team members to make this possible,” said Jose Maldonado, director of quality and safety at RLS Logistics. “Our team continues to deliver the highest food safety and quality standards protecting customer brands while at all RLS cold storage warehouses across the nation.

“I am immensely proud of their hard work.”

With more than 1,850 refrigerated warehouses in the United States, RLS’s warehouses rank among the top 19% of refrigerated warehouses with an AA certification from BRCGS.

RLS Logistics’ third-party logistics (3PL) warehouses have been certified through BRCGS since 2014. The BRCGS grading system ranges from AA, A, B, C, D, and uncertified, from highest to lowest. The scale is based on the amount and type of non-conformances found in the audit. A rating of AA signals less than five minor nonconformances. In 2022, RLS facilities secured AA rankings. The BRCGS storage and distribution food safety audit is the global standard that challenges cold storage teams to adhere to best practices, risks analysis, quality management, and more.

“Our team lived up to our name of being cold chain experts in 2022, garnering AA rankings all year,” Maldonado concluded. “We look forward to our certifications in the coming years and continuing to set the bar high for the cold storage warehouse industry.”
