Strauss Logistics values SHEQ Management as an integral part of its operations.

Our SHEQ policy evolves with industry experience and trends, regulatory changes, and client requirements. It is far-reaching, including health and safety, environmental management, and service standards.

We’re proud to say that it unifies our company under over-arching objectives by integrating all systems and processes into a single, comprehensive framework.

SQAS Accreditation

SQAS - Safety and Quality Assessment for Sustainability


Strauss Logistics processes are highly dependent on hydrocarbons such as diesel and oil to propel our operations. By their nature hydrocarbons have an unavoidable impact on the environment. The organisation remains committed to minimising these impacts. As a business we also appreciate and understand the environment footprint associated with our activities and we are committed to manage these in a legally compliant way.

We continue to mitigate the impacts related to air, water and waste footprint through improved efficiency. Proper maintenance of our vehicles is critical to keep them on the road. Our Workshop team performs all engine checks and maintenance, all these helps our drivers to use fuel efficiently and avoid unforeseen costs at the same time managing our carbon footprint. Trucks are always monitored for visible smoke or illuminated check engine lights can help identify needed maintenance or repairs.

Our air quality management systems enable us to develop and implement feasible and sustainable emission-reduction strategies to mitigate our atmospheric footprint. Our fleet replacement policy takes environmental management into consideration, retiring older trucks and engines and replacing them with newer vehicles with the latest emission control technologies plays a major role in reducing air pollution thereby managing our carbon footprint. While replacing older truck with a newer one will yield emissions benefits, we also maximize benefits by replacing the oldest vehicles with the most mileage first and choosing a replacement truck with a newer engine.

Our Waste Management Plan addresses management of all solid and liquid waste, including hazardous and non-hazardous waste produced as a result of our operational activities. Our Waste Management approach focuses on legal compliance and adhering to waste management hierarchy principles.   

ISO Environment
