Sustainability & Environmental Initiatives

Sustainable considerations are embedded into every process and every job that PDI takes on for its customers. We aim to reduce our environmental impact as responsible stewards of your products and our environment. By providing end-to-end solutions on one site, we avoid additional travel, costs, and transportation impacts on the environment.

PDI Bulk is able to provide the most sustainable transportation model, because of our rail services, our processes, and our integrated checks and certifications.

ISO 9001

PDI Bulk is fully certified by the Registration Accreditation Board for the ISO 9001 standard, and we are proud to be the only bulk trucking company that is certified for all aspects of our business, including: rail terminal operations, bulk transport, transloading, packaging, warehousing, and delivery.

ISO 9001 accreditation ensures the following universal management principles are implemented:

  • Customer Focus

The ISO 9001 standard is implemented to produce a quality system for all aspects of business operation and, in order to retain registration, annual audits are conducted by a third party.
