O&S Shipping Receives ISO 9001 Certification

Though not everyone may know what it is (though this is drastically changing), ISO 9001 certification is increasingly becoming the hallmark of a good business reputation.

Results from an independent client satisfaction survey

We can say with utmost conviction that the results of our ISO training speak for themselves – but you can also see what our clients have to say about us! Have a look at the results of an independent survey taken by an external auditing firm that was one of the proofs used to get us ISO certified!

Of 71 customers surveyed, there was:

88.43% approval when asked “How would you rate the service of O&S Shipping?” Service quality was measured in terms of arrival date, transit time, cargo conditions, and value for money.

95.3% satisfaction when asked “How would you rate the customer service of O&S Shipping?” Customer service was measured in terms of communication, politeness, patience, friendliness, knowledge, promptness, and helpfulness.

Moreover, 90.4% of customers surveyed would likely recommend our company to a friend or colleague.

We always get a fabulous service from O&S. They are very polite, friendly, and always willing to go the extra mile.

What does this mean for O&S Shipping?

One thing that is necessary to stress is that through ISO 9001, O&S Shipping have clearly become a more efficient company that is more equipped than ever to provide its shipping, logistics, and marine agency services.

However, it is also very much a case of business as usual. We highly acknowledge the benefits of ISO certification, while firmly noting that this certification is ultimately the natural evolution of the ethos of high quality that O&S Shipping has always adopted in its business ethic. ISO certification has allowed us, and will keep allowing us, to maximise the verity of that ethos.
