It is an honour to have been chosen number one for the third time in row. A lot of hard work and dedication has been put into maintaining this position. The Düsseldorf-based IT service provider's efforts were recognised and on 31 May it was awarded with the "Best brand 2011" award in the category "Best freight exchange". The ETM publisher's readership, consisting of readers from lastauto omnibus, trans aktuell and FERNFAHRER have once again voiced their support for TimoCom with its international freight exchange TC Truck&Cargo®.
The award recognises the commitment in the development of innovative products and services which make the everyday work of the companies involved in transport easier and more lucrative. Last year, TimoCom considerably increased its product innovations and services. In addition to the special hotline TimoCom Assist, where the company's experts answer questions concerning the products and transport business, the service number "TimoCom to go" was launched this year. With this service customers can receive information about current freight and vehicle offers via mobile no matter where they are. In April an absolute record in the company's history was reached with over 400,000 freight and vehicle offers! The European-wide dept collection service TC CashCare also provides good results. In 2010 over 85% of all debt collection orders had a successful outcome. Another added value which could have played an important role in the 7,696 readers' election.
This opinion shows a true vote of confidence for TimoCom. Marcel Frings, TimoCom's Chief Representative received the trophy at the award ceremony held in Perkins Park in Stuttgart on behalf of the more than 300 employees: „We accept this award as recognition for the work and development especially in the last 3 years. We want to be more than a freight exchange. The prize demonstrates that we are seen, used and appreciated as a transport network and procurement platform. We thank the readers for their support. We owe this positive result and image to our highly committed team".
TimoCom wants to continue offering high standard quality to its customers. For this reason the company is continuously working on the programs so that they best fit to the user's needs. In this way, processes within the system, for example, are made even more efficient or useful additional tools are developed.
