For a safer supply chain!

ASTRA Supply Chain Services Ltd. is an independent company within Hermes-OTTO International and was founded at the end of 2014. The new company offers three core services to internal and external customers: apparel quality inspections, professional audit services and IT-related supply chain solutions.

‘Due to the sad incidents in apparel factories in recent years, consumers all over the world require more and more transparency in their supply chain. There is an increasing demand for social compliance – the topic is getting a lot of media coverage,’ says Sandra Vollmert, Managing Director of ASTRA.

ASTRA has successfully passed its first accreditation and is one of the authorised auditing companies participating in the WRAP certification program in China.

In the area of quality, ASTRA offers inspections inside factories and operates successful inspection centres in the main sourcing regions. Inspections of finished products are conducted in a neutral environment and under senior supervision.
