        “I have been involved with the QCHAT since its beginning, and not only has it helped bring awareness to the entire port community of the value of high quality, it has proven to be completely sustainable year on year. It is particularly rewarding that those who participate – manufacturers, labor, ship lines, terminal operators, stevedoring companies and processors – all truly believe in the concept and the process. It’s not just talk, it’s action and results.”
