The survey which was published by Drewry and the European Shippers’ Council (ESC) in June 2018, gave us some food for thought. One of the main outcomes of the survey was that the 400 shippers and forwarders who took part, rated the service of container shipping lines with a score of 3.2 on average on a scale of 1 (very dissatisfied) to 5 (very satisfied).
In the survey were different levels of satisfaction for 16 different carrier activities reviewed. All the service features, received a poor or medium level of satisfaction score from customers. Click here for the entire survey.
We, at Ultimate Software, believe there is a way to increase the satisfaction of the liner shipping industry. That’s why we developed our own solution: FlexShip.
