QSL envisions that its mission be conducted within a sustainable development approach governed with the greatest respect for health and safety, marine security, and the environment (HSSE). These founding principles are a priority and are conveyed through each of our core values.



Thanks to the men and women of our organization, we have forged ourselves an important place in our industry. At QSL, protecting these men and women is our most important value.

We have implemented an Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management system that allows us to better structure the actions of our managers and employees as well as standardize work processes, thereby continuously improving health and safety at all levels of our organization.

Continuous improvement in all our processes as well as dedicating energy and resources for the development of our expertise in health and safety is the future of our company.


As QSL is an integral link of the logistic service chain in North America, maritime security is at the heart of all our activities. Since the onset of the Maritime Occupational Health and Safety Regulations in 2004, our entire network has implemented the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS CODE).

Through the upholding of recognized security measures, QSL continuously contributes in maintaining efficiency in marine transportation. Protecting the people and cargo transiting on our terminals as well as helping prevent illegal activities and terrorism is mandatory. QSL employee participation and collaboration with governing authority is conducted in total transparency thereby contributing to the security of our ports and the neighbouring communities they operate in.
