Customer care - the heart of EMS

2018 EMS Customer Care Awards

EMS customers deserve excellent service when sending items internationally. Each year EMS Cooperative members’ customer service performance is measured. Only when EMS member postal operators achieve the high-standards set out in the EMS Cooperative's Business Plan will they receive an EMS customer care award in recognition of the quality of their customer service call centre.
