In order to successfully ship material, accurately, on-time, around the world, it is imperative that we have a fluid and reliable Quality Management System. The hurdles that face an internationally focused Supplier are different and sometimes non-existent to those Companies operating solely in a domestic capacity. A typical international transaction does not oftentimes benefit from a reliable and predictable U.S. infrastructure as domestic Suppliers have.
Since 1958, OHM International has shipped material to jobsites in nearly 100 countries worldwide. Each shipment is unique, each country of destination has its own customs (taxing authority & cultural), some shipments travel via ocean, others via air freight, some will transship in unrelated ports along the way. Each shipment requires extensive documentation (SED’s, B/L’s or A/WB’s, LC’s etc.). Some Customers require us to deliver material to jobsites in hard to reach locations such as the Amazon delta basin or Andes Mountains. Our ISO9001 certified Quality Management System has enabled us to better overcome the hurdles that accompany international shipping andhave provided the necessary tools to resolve problems more efficiently.
A Quality System is only as effective as the commitment level of those employees charged with its execution. At OHM, every employee receives comprehensive training, and works in an environment where they are taught to approach their jobs with enthusiasm and prudence to help maintain a cycle of continual improvement. We stress these values to our employees because they are the backbone to achieving and maintaining customer satisfaction in our ever-changing world economy.
