DTI-BPS approves new PNS on Road Freight Transport

The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) approves the Philippine National Standard (PNS) 2135:2018 Road Freight Transport. The development of PNS 2135:2018 was crafted by the proposal of the Competitiveness Bureau to support the National Logistics Masterplan Program (NLMP) established by the Department of Trade and Industry, in collaboration with the GIZ Project Transport and Climate Change. PNS 2135:2018 was approved upon the recommendation of the Bureau of Philippine Standards Technical Committee on Logistics (BPS/TC 84).

BPS/TC 84 is composed of qualified stakeholders from the DTI Competitiveness Bureau, Confederation of Truckers Association of the Philippines, DTI Fair Trade and Enforcement Bureau, DTI Consumer Protection and Advocacy Bureau, DTI Board of Investments, DTI Export Marketing Bureau, DOTr Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, DOTr Land Transportation Office, NEDA Philippine Institute for Development Studies, Philippine Ports Authority, Port Users Confederation of the Philippines, Philippine Exporters Confederation, UP National Center for Transportation Studies, Academy of Developmental Logistics, Philippine Multimodal Transport and Logistics Association, Inc., Philippine Center for Environmental and Sustainable Development, Inc., and GIZ Philippines.

 

This standard aims to enhance overall operations in the road freight transport as it provides guidelines to fleet operation and/or freight forwarders for reliable, safe, cost-efficient and environmentally sustainable road freight transport. It is applicable to all types of fleet operators and/or freight forwarders regardless of their size, type and activities. It is also intended to improve the overall logistics performance of the country and subsequently increase the Logistics Performance Index (LPI) ranking of the Philippines.

The DTI-BPS is the National Standards Body of the Philippines. It is the country’s member to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
