Rest assured knowing that CMS Logistics, Inc. is ISO 9001:2015 certified. Here are some of the benefits that you will receive working with us:
ISO 9001 outlines the criteria for an organization’s quality management system, which drives standardization. Standardization results in quality service; customers can expect the same exceptional services every time.
- On-Time Delivery
With standardization comes efficiency, resulting in on-time delivery services. An ISO certified company already has processes in place to calculate lead times and coordinate each step in the process from the initial shipment to the delivery of the product. These systems and relationships with trusted partners result in fewer unexpected delays.
- Cost Reduction
In addition to standardization and QMS, ISO 9001 focuses on continuous improvement in refining processes.
Having a QMS in place results in reliable services, meaning fewer failures, compared to those that don’t. Standardization and quality management sets a company up for success in its deliverables. And if there are inconsistencies, an ISO 9001 certified company already has a process set up to identify and resolve the issue, plus improve the process to prevent the problem from replicating itself.
- Improved Customer Satisfaction
Each of the above reasons result in improved customer satisfaction—the guiding principle of ISO is to ensure the quality of the services being offered consistently improves and meets the needs of customers.
