London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 12, 2012 -- In August 2012 TELS, an international group of companies specializing in freight forwarding, has updated its Instruction for accepting contractors (transport companies) for cooperation with the company. The Instruction has been successfully implemented in the course of a few past years, and now as the new algorithm is getting applied, TELS advances in contractors' credibility inspection. The document is updated regularly to comply with the world's standards and industry requirements.
With its in-house truck fleet, TELS Group of Companies regards road transportations as its top priority. The company specializes in international transportations across the Baltic and CIS countries, Europe and Eurasia on the whole. However, third-party contractors chosen among other transport companies are employed for cooperation with TELS either on long-term or one-time basis.
The updated algorithm is the following: the TELS specialists at the Department for working with transport companies will process the incoming requests from prospective contractors and carefully evaluate their compliance with the TELS requirements. This stage includes also studying the prospective contractors' transportation history and making preliminary decisions about their service quality and the level of reliability. The next stage includes a series of compulsory activities - collecting and inspecting the documental information about the contractor, confirmation of its legal status and checking if the submitted information is true. Afterwards the collected data is going through double-checking, and then the Department makes a final decision about accepting the contractor.
"Our company realizes that the contractor's reputation is one of the most crucial factors that influences the cargo safety and minimizes losses during transportation. Our goal is to introduce a more strict algorithm for accepting new partners, since any flaw in the transportation process cast a shade on our services too, and we are proud of being a reliable freight forwarder for hundreds of our clients" - describes the company's representative.
