    “This is part of our continuing journey to business excellence. Our well-established management systems enabled us to adapt to changes and ensure sustainability of our operations. Though faced with the challenges of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to improve the company’s processes, preserve the environment, and care for the health and safety of our employees, with the ultimate goal of enhancing our customer service,” NLEX Corporation President and General Manager Luigi Bautista was quoted as saying.

    “Our recertification achievement assures that despite the disruptions caused by the global health crisis, we can ensure the quality of service that we offer to our customers,” he added.

    The NLEX Corporation has instituted and implemented programs such as the continuous maintenance and upgrade of NLEX-SCTEX assets and facilities; implementation of traffic laws; conduct of lectures and distribution of materials on safe driving practices and roadshows to uphold road safety.
