Dubai, 10th May, 2011 – TNT has been recognised in the Middle East as the leading express operator, having just been awarded the Express Logistics Provider of the Year Award, receiving this prestigious recognition for the second time in three years.
Awarded to the service provider that has delivered a portfolio of market-leading solutions within the Middle East’s express logistics sector, this was a particularly hotly contested category at the annual Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATA), with all of the major integrators represented in the final selection. Companies were asked to provide evidence of exceptional performance in the field of express logistics, including network coverage, volumes transported, customer service, world-class facilities and a broad range of delivery options. The awards are awarded based on the deliberations of a panel of expert judges from the field of express and logistics.
In summarizing the reasons for selecting TNT once again the judges highlighted the attention to maintaining a high quality service, good customer interaction and ongoing investment in TNT’s infrastructure in the Middle East arena.
The recent opening of the Dubai International Airport hub, supported by His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al Maktoum and the upgrade of road and air connections across the region has certainly kept TNT in the industry’s eyeline in the last six months.
“This award recognizes the ongoing hard work that TNT has been putting in to maintain customer satisfaction and growth during the last four or five years. In particular, our road express product has excelled and with the upgrade to our air facilities and the 767 connection direct from Liege we expect even greater results in the future” said Mark Woodcock, TNT Express Sales Director for the Middle East, after picking up the award. “Winning for the second time in three years is especially satisfying in such a competitive arena”, he added.
