About : 

  • Every article and bag is documented, tracked and traced at each stage of handling and transmission point to ensure its prompt sorting, transmission and delivery within the assured time-frame. Because of this strict quality control, the cases of delay are kept to the inescapable minimum. In its bid to provide after sales service, each Speed Post centre has a separate customer-service wing to process enquiries and grievances. These customer-service centres have a well designed MIS on every article booked and the customer wing services at the four metros are easily accessible through fax and telex. The marketing wing in the department ensures monitoring the pulse of the customers by regular market survey, and on assessing the courier needs and the various segments of the customer so that existing services could be redesigned and more value added services be provided. These market surveys are utilised also to assess the quality of systems designed and the service as actually provided and help take the necessary remedial actions.
