“Today there is hardly any quality award where Quick Cargo Service would not belong to the front runners”. These were the words of Lufthansa chief Dr. Andreas Otto on the occasion of Quick Cargo’s 40th anniversary.
Amongst its global competitors the medium-sized forwarder is not only holding its own, but is often acclaimed for its top quality.
Most recently in November 2016, QCS was recognised as the best medium-sized sea and airfreight company in Germany. The Global Institute of Logistics (GIL) awarded QCS
the distinction “Best in Class”. At a ceremony in Berlin the award was presented by GIL CEO Kieran Ring to the managing director Stephan Haltmayer. The logistics institute used various criteria – including the networking of QCS – in its selection of the Frankfurt based forwarder as the industry leader. As an example of innovative management, Kieran cited the founding of alliances such as the association of common interests in airfreight “IGLU Air Cargo”, the China Cargo Alliance and the Aerospace Logistics Group.
In 2015 Quick Cargo also won the prestigious Quality and eCargo Award from Lufthansa. The airline had also bestowed its valued customer with the “Quality Award Germany” in 2011, in recognition of “the highest delivery standards” amongst all German forwarders. That same year QCS was also named “Best Handling Agent for Europe” by the China Logistics Club.
In 2016 QCS won Lufthansa’s Quality & eCargo Award for the third time, after their previous success in 2011 and 2015.
At this year‘s Forwarders‘ Association convention in Frankfurt, J. Florian Pfaff, Area Manager for Germany, presented the first prize to the Mörfelden based forwarding company. In the elite contest with other top forwarders, QCS triumphed through having the highest standards in delivery quality. In deciding the winner of the Quality Awards, quality factors such as punctuality, compliance of delivery contents, and the quality of handling are taken into account.
Stephan Haltmayer, President of QCS-Quick Cargo Service, was clearly delighted with their victory, „This Quality Award is also an award for every single QCS employee. Together with our partners, we commit ourselves every day to the highest standards of quality. This award shows us that we are on the right track, and motivates us to continue to work hard on our development and to pursue our goals consistently.
