Reytec t/as FDT in conjunction with our logistics business unit Global Accreditation Services are endorsed service providers and auditors for the Retail Logistics Supply Chain (RLSC) and National Logistics Safety Code (NLSC). The Code was developed by ALC in conjuction with a group of senior representatives from the retail, transport and logistics industries. The eighteen-month process involved broad consultation with key stakeholders including government, apex bodies and unions.
The ten-point code supports a clear chain of responsibility in freight logistics, which involves all parties in the operation from the supplier and retailer to the carrier and logistics provider. In setting clear operational and administrative guidelines for compliance with the spirit and letter of law, the code recognises the importance of public safety and amenity in retail logistics operations.
While the Code is voluntary and applies only to signatories, it will be a requirement of doing business with the major retailers. It reinforces minimum levels of behaviour to help those in the RLSC manage their obligations under relevant road transport and occupational health and safety laws.
