Introducing our Customer Services Centre

The founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos is often famously quoted as saying that you must never take your focus off the customer experience.
Why? Because word of mouth is so important in an online environment – as offline a customer would only tell around five to six people if they had a bad experience – but online they can tell over five to six thousand!

In conjunction with co-hosts Tradewinds, we are continuing to assemble a stellar cast of leading ship owners, service providers and major suppliers to discuss the issues of implementing smarter shipping processes at the Four Seasons hotel on October 17-18. The conference kicks off with our annual user event, Connect 11.

The session on October 18 has been developed by ShipServ and TradeWinds on the fundamental premise that ship owners can and will engage in innovation only when it results in higher efficiencies and regulatory compliance with corresponding lower installation and/or operational costs.
