Overview Security Information
Security plays an increasing importance within the shipping business. Naturally security belongs to our company philosophy. Here you can find the main security initiatives.
International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS)
The ISPS-Code has been implemented by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in the wake of 9/11 attacks.
As annex to the SOLAS Convention (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea), the ISPS Code is applicable for vessels and terminals and went into force on 1st July 2004.
Long before that date we were able to certify our vessels with ISPS.
Container Seal Policy of Quantum Atlantic Services
Better protection and safety for your cargo during transit with the Quantum Atlantic Services seal policy.
All full containers moving under a Quantum Atlantic Services Bill of Lading must be delivered with a High Security Seal (HSS) complying with the current applicable versions of ISO 17712 standards.
Supply chain security begins at the point of origin including application of a high security seal immediately upon completion of the stuffing operation. After securely stuffing and sealing a container please make sure that the seal number is provided on the shipping instructions forwarded to Quantum Atlantic Services.
If a container arrives at the port without a high security seal, Quantum Atlantic Services reserves the right to refuse acceptance for shipment. Any additional costs associated with this will be charged to the customer. In this case our organisation will make contact with the customer.
