The Government Services Administration has released their annual Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) rankings of the Transportation Service Providers (TSPs) participating in GSA’s Centralized Household Goods Traffic Management Program (CHAMP).  Cartwright Companies, a leading provider of integrated global mobility solutions, placed third in the International rankings.

The Customer Satisfaction Index is a performance metric used by the relocating government employee and the agency’s transportation officer or traffic manager to evaluate the Transportation Service Providers.  This information is captured on the Household Goods Carrier Evaluation Report.  GSA and the household goods moving industry agree upon the evaluation criteria in advance. It is the basis of the CSI and measures a customer’s (employee and transportation personnel) satisfaction with a TSP’s performance.  As a result of these annual rankings, GSA may increase their scope of operation with TSPs who rank higher.

Of the 77 TSPs registered for international shipping, only 10 actually received scores.  Cartwright received a CSI of 103.73 – a CSI of 100 indicates average customer satisfaction.  Cartwright is a perennial member in the rankings, scoring a 102.94 in 2008.  A complete list of scores is available at:

TSPs who apply to participate in GSA’s CHAMP are stringently evaluated and assessed.  TSPs qualify on financial stability, business experience, quality assurance, and knowledge of the Household Goods Tender of Service (HTOS) standards.

The Cartwright Companies is proud of this accomplishment and feels it reemphasizes the company’s philosophy and the importance each and every employee places on delivery top-notch customer service.
