Den Hartogh Logistics has been awarded Eastman’s Supplier's Excellence Award 2018 for performed logistics services. Setting the standard in supplier excellence, Eastman annually recognizes suppliers that have performed above and beyond the expectations they have set through the Eastman Supplier Excellence Program.
The Eastman's Supplier Excellence Award is given to suppliers who meet on-time delivery requirements, conform to order specifications, and prove continual improvement through significant, documented value-add projects. Den Hartogh was also awarded in 2017 in recognition of outstanding quality performance as isotank operator for Eastman Chemical.
Eastman motived their choice for Den Hartogh because of ‘excellent service, customer focused mindset and fast order commitment, the support of Eastman’s Deep Sea business on a global level, coverage out of majority of EMEA loading locations, quick response on new commercial requests, pro-active in conceptual offering/better solutions and shipping routes and world wide coverage to most remote locations’.
“This award to the global Den Hartogh team is a welcome recognition for our continuous efforts in delivering a strong customer experience”, says Jacco van Holten, Commercial Director of Den Hartogh Logistics. “We are very proud that Eastman, one of the major chemical industry producers in the market, has awarded us with the Supplier Excellence Award for the second year in a row.”
