Hermann Warehouse Corporation Receives 3 AIB Superior Ratings
December 11, 2023
Hermann Warehouse Corporation continues to provide organizations with custom solutions for all their logistics and supply chain needs. AIB Certifications are a great way to ensure the safety of end consumers, show accountability, and strengthen consumer trust.
Three Hermann Warehouses received new AIB Superior Ratings after this year’s audit:
New Castle, DE – 965
Rising Sun Road, NJ – 950
Bordentown-Hedding Road, NJ – 930
This marks the second year that all three facilities have exceeded AIB's passing score of 700.
These scores allow us to partner with organizations that ship and store food-grade products, which must be stored in clean, quality-controlled warehouses. “Passing score is above a 700, above a 900 is exceptional. Having a good score shows the standard to which we hold our warehouses currently,” said Jackie Kopelakis, Safety Director at Hermann Services.
During inspections, companies are evaluated in five categories: operational methods and personnel practices, maintenance for food safety, cleaning practices, integrated pest management, and adequacy of prerequisite and food safety programs. By achieving superior ratings, we can continue to partner with organizations that ship and store food-grade products, since they require clean and quality-controlled warehouses.
“We are proud our warehouse received a superior AIB rating for 2023. Setting and maintaining quality practices starts with our people,” said Jennifer Berglund, Warehouse Manager for our Delaware warehouse. “People that understand their roles and responsibilities. At Hermann, we have the right people, a great team working together, and that’s how we get it done!”
Alicia Render, Office Manager of our Rising Sun Road warehouse, expressed her appreciation for the achievement, stating, “Success isn’t achieved by one hand, but many hands. Maintaining a clean and organized warehouse is an everyday goal. Daily walks through the warehouse and making lists of improvements, even the smallest thing matters to AIB. This helped us in so many ways. Receiving a score of 950 means so much to us, and we are so proud of the family of coworkers we have here.”
Hector Comulado, Warehouse Manager of our Bordentown-Hedding Road warehouse, also spoke about the experience, saying, “The AIB Audit was a wonderful experience. We passed the AIB Audit with a final score of 930, and next year will prove that we took the information given to us to have a better outcome in the future. We strive to improve our score yearly based on the feedback we receive during our audit."
