Yodel Awarded British Standards Certification

Hatfield, United Kingdom, August 31, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Yodel, the UK’s leading parcel delivery company, has achieved British Standards 25999-2 certification for its Business Continuity Management system (BCMs).

Yodel achieved full certification for its network of local service centres, national sort centres and its haulage subsidiary, Yodel Transport, including transport control tower and vehicle operation centres, following a long-term and thorough audit. The certification is a major achievement for the company, which now enters into a three year surveillance cycle.

BCM is a management process that identifies potential threats and the impact they could have on an organisation and so helps to provide a framework for building resilience and effective response.

Marija Simovic, COO, Yodel said: “Achieving official certification provides reassurance for the organisations that rely on us that we have the necessary systems in place to respond to challenges and maintain business continuity.”

The certification was awarded by Intertec Moody International.
