Customer Care Award

In a year when many costs rose significantly and volumes remained flat, continuing to deliver the very best customer service was more challenging than ever. Having honest conversations with customers while delivering on promises made was essential to maintaining long term customers relationships.

Customer care means going out of your way to ensure that your whole operation is geared to consistently exceeding your customers’ expectations. We want to see evidence of commitment at all levels of the company and, of course, testimonials from customers and the results of customer satisfaction surveys.

This Award is open to all third party logistics and own-account operators (where the transport operation plays a significant role in the delivery of excellent customer service) running fleets of 11 or more commercial vehicles.

Judges will want to see:

  • What processes are in place to understand what KPIs are important to your customers;
  • How you monitor your levels of customer satisfaction;
  • Evidence that everyone from the senior management down has bought into the customer care ethos, rather than that the company just runs an excellent customer care or complaints department;
  • How you have gone above and beyond business as usual to delight your customers (or, in many cases, your customers’ customers);
  • How excellence in customer care has helped you grow your business.
